We visited over New year 2012/2013 and had booked a Superior Room and requested a nice view in advance. On arrival we got an internally facing room (overlooking an internal atrium above where breakfast is served) so we asked to change rooms. When changing, we also requested to move one of the recently refurbished rooms (they're gradually doing the whole hotel) as the superior room we'd rejected was very outdated and tired. They said they didnt have any superior rooms that had been refurbished so in the end we downgraded to take a refurbished standard room with external view. The only difference with standard room is the size, but we had more than enough room and it was much nicer.
Breakfast buffet was good, although very busy so go early. Pool was freezing cold so we only visited once. The jaccuzzi was good but small for the hotel size. The saunas were split by gender, so we didnt go in as we wanted to stay together.
Great location to explore the city, good staff and service, lobby bar was nice.
- Avoid Skybar, the views arent great and its very small but trying to be a nightclub with loud annoying music!
- Request externally facing rooms, internal ones are quite dark.
- Request recently rennovated room, they're much nicer.
- Beware of 'superior' rooms, they're bigger but out-dated.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
