As other reviewers have said, the hotel is truly fabulous in every way and I would like to particularly mention the reception staff that goes over and beyond to help in every way possible.
However you should keep in mind a couple of things (which do not change my full recommendation of this hotel).
Even if it is in the city center, the truth is that it is at its edge. This means that you have to walk around half an hour or change two trams (2 & 46) to get to the actual city center (5-20 min depending on traffic and destination). However the hotel is very close to the Liberty Statue, the Cave church, and other attractions.
Also the neighborhood does not feel as safe as the city center at night; there are a lot of homeless people sleeping on the benches and beggars in every corner (most are harmless but a few are a bit bold). Let me be very clear: I’m not saying that it is not a safe neighborhood, just that it feels slightly less safe than the city center.
It is minor, even silly, but I didn’t much care for the toiletries. I think that such a hotel should pay attention to every detail and the toiletries did not live up to the hotel’s very high standards.
Also, the first two days there was a slight odor in the corridor of our floor (5th) but it went away the next couple of days.
The aircondition in my room was a bit erratic. The degrees did not always correspond to the actual temprature (or feel).
All in all it was an excellent stay and I have already recommended this hotel to all my friends.
