My role requires me to travel extensively and run strategy sessions all over the world. I stay at all the major five star hotels usually in their flag ship hotel in their home country.
These have included: the Four Seasons, the Langham in Sydney, the Shangri-La in Tokyo, the Lotte, the Swiss Hotel, The Address - Dubai, the Radisson Ukraine in Moscow and more Marriott, Hilton, Renaissance, Hyatt, Ritz and Westin’s than I care to remember. The list goes on, and there are many I have forgotten.
The Barvikha has surpassed all of these place on a number of points. First, the check-in was the best I have experienced at any hotel. A very close second was the Address in Dubai, however here I was greeted by name before anyone looked at my passport. The service at the desk was friendly and timely and in all other ways efficient.
Second, the staff have been extremely service orientated. I only have ever experienced this at one other small boutique hotel I go to for Christmas every year. The way I think of it is that their attitude is like they are part-family and part-staff. This comes from the way that I can ask any member of staff for any request. If they cannot help me, they will take me to someone who can and ensure everything is sorted.
Finally, the hotel has a warmth that comes not from its austere decoration, but from the way it made me feel like it is a home-away-from-home. This, no other hotel I have ever stayed at, not even boutique LHWs I have stayed at on holiday have managed. To get this feeling while staying at a hotel on business is truly a statement of how special this hotel is.
