Like others, I too am puzzled how this hotel managed to get a 4-star rating. Perhaps it's the amount of services provided, but certainly the interiors and room size left something to be desired.
The hotel is located on a street closed from traffic, so when coming with shuttle you should prepare for a brisk little walk with your luggage. This may not work out so well if you have disabilities or plenty of luggage with you. Some of these problems are further escalated by the fact that you enter the hotel from ground floor and lobby is one floor up. There's two short sets of steps in between street level and the elevator, and no ramp for accessibility.
Lobby staff was extremely helpful, I couldn't have asked for more. We got a room from the same floor as the lobby, facing away from the street. View was a bit boring, basically of a wall across the yard.
Room was super-cramped, with a bed, desk and office table taking up most of the space in the room. Did not bother as much for overnight stay, but could have gotten a tad annoying had I unpacked all my gear -- instead I opted just to stow away my bags and not unpack them at all.
Breakfast was also very good, with fresh bread, vegetables and a lot of other options available. Breakfast room had a nice view overlooking rooftops of nearby buildings.
