Location of this hotel could not be better. Breakfast was great most days. On new Years' day, however, confusion reigned as the hotel tried to combine late breakfast with early Brunch and moved dishes as you were trying to fill your plate from them. Like many hotels in old buildings, the large and spacious room had been subdivided to create a sleeping space, a bathroom and separate toilet - a nice touch - and an entrance area.
The bar is very expensive for its sterile atmosphere and slow service.
For a top class hotel it was disappointing in several ways - a micro wardrobe with too few coat hangers, Something in the air irritated the eyes of one of our party - dust mites? While the bathroom was wiped shiny and the bed was made, the sleeping side of the room appeared to have been only perfunctorily tidied and instead of a double bed we had two single beds pushed together so that unless you were careful, you ended up on the floor between them.
Don't try to get the hotel to call a taxi for you, walk 5 minutes to the nearby taxi stand:- neither on new years' eve nor on the day when we had to catch the plane did the taxi they ordered come in any reasonable length of time so that we had to take the initiative and find a taxi ourselves to get to our destination on time.
Otherwise reception were very helpful and efficient.
