You can't beat the true inner city location! Right above central station.
The lobby is very nicely decorated and smells great! Check-in and out service was fast and polite.
There is a nice coffee shop that turns into a bar later in the evening with a band.
The breakfast for me was included and tasted great! a nice variety of pastries, hot and cold food, fruit etc. We didn't eat at the restaurant in the evenings but did have room service. It was quick to arrive and I was nicely surprised by the portions, but expensive.
There was a great deck area with a pool and heated jacuzzi. The view is great! It was too cold to swim in the pool but the kids couldn't resist the heated jacuzzi. There is also a decent sized gym too.
The best part of the hotel was the BED! It was the most comfortable bed I have slept in, ever! The pillows are great too, and soft. I had a deluxe suite room and the size was good. The baby crib was free. we had a nice view, and the view from the elevator is fun too, especially at night.
The bathroom was a decent but I couldn't understand the half-size door of the tub. When you showered, the whole floor got wet! Also, I had to call down to have toothbrush set brought up. They had tea/coffee facilites in the room and of course, very overpriced mini-bar! There is a room safe, and iron/board too.
Overall the hotel was nice and calm, and safe. (you can only access your floor, and only your floor, with your card). A very nice 5* Hotel to pamper yourself with. I got a great deal with an industry rate but I'm sure it is very expensive otherwise.
PS... I don't know why they keep saying bonjour! though, made me laugh :)
