Already from the outside one can see that this hotel is special - colorful ceilings call for attention and are especially beautiful at night. One can spend hours just observing their fanciful scenes, including some videos, all created by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist.
In contrast to all these colors, the elevators are rather dark; hallways are monochrome, with only a strip of colorful light. Our room was all white, very well organized, with sliding glass doors separating the room itself from the large bathroom that was furnished so as to blend with the design of the room. There was also a sliding kind of a desk next to the bath tub, very creative.
When we first arrived at the hotel, there was a problem with hot water and we were not given a room, had to wait until this technical problem was fixed - that could have been handled better by the reception staff - they all seem to be very young, more experience would help.
Breakfast brought to the room was excellent.
Bed included a very soft feather mattress which we had to remove in order to sleep better.
Did not go to the spa, but the winter garden next to it is very enjoyable.
