Stayed 2 nights with the kids in an adjoining room. Seems like the kind of grand hotel one would have stayed in during a tour of Europe several generations ago. The staff were terrific, especially with our small kids who can be a bit, um, energetic. The restaurant recommendations were spot on. Both nights there was a small treat awaiting us in our rooms: fruit salad one night, a small bottle of port for the parents and puzzles for the kids the next night. Our rate included breakfast, which was an ample buffet open for most of the morning. The hotel is well located for seeing the sites, for example a short walk to Tram 28. The lobby has a very comfortable and pretty lounge, where we enjoyed cocktails. Each floor has a small sitting area that our kids enjoyed giving them some room to roam. There is a fitness "room" but there's almost no equipment: I used a yoga mat and gymball but that's about it. Note this is not at all a sleek modern-design hotel, but if you want a taste of old Europe charm, I'd highly recommend Avenida Palace.
