As the title says, we booked the hotel and got upgraded to one of the residences. Though the apartment was indeed fantastic, we maybe would have liked a bit more to be at the hotel. The design of the residences is not the same as the hotel, it is modern and functional.
The apartment was very large (2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living room) and very nicely decorated.
It was clean and comfortable, and we could anyway enjoy the facilities of the hotel. The internet access was extremely good, fast, easy and reliable. Our stay would have been absolutely perfect if it wasn't for the really strong smell of cigarettes that was present in the living room. We kept the windows open during our full stay and still the smell was there...
