We have just completed hotel stays in Vienna , Paris , Milan , Florence , and Rome , and this hotel set the standard by which we judged the others.
All the hotels were approximately in the E 300 to 400 range.
With the exception of the PHK, all fell down in one aspect or another : the room would be well appointed but the service would be poor, or the service would be good but the room would be very small or not to the expected standard.
The PHK ticked all the boxes as they say, with service and room presentation all of a very high standard .
We booked a grand deluxe room, and were upgraded on arrival to a junior suite, which was a very nice gesture from the hotel. I did have a look at a standard room ( 'superior') while we were there. As expected it was a lot smaller than our room but was appointed to the same high standard.
We walked to all the city attractions.
