I've stayed at the DeBrett before, and really like it for both location, rooms and service....BUT this time I was put in the room they should close down permanently!! It's a superior room, so costs a third more than regular rooms.
The problem is it has no natural light or outside windows - it faces onto the interior atrium where the bar and restaurant are - and you have to keep the curtains closed all the time, as with a light on inside (which is sort of important in order to see), anyone sitting in the restaurant or bar can see straight into the room.
It really spoiled the stay for me, having to keep the curtains closed and not being able to open a window - and the fact that they charge a premium for the room and didn't give any sort of warning made the whole thing seem worse - even backpacking in the Greek islands years ago they had the decency to say the room had no outside window, so surely in this day and age it must be a legal obligation??
So, it's still a great hotel, but make sure they don't try and give you this room!!
