the hotel has an excellent location in the old town, and in a quiet area too. the decor is very smart and stylish and the rooms are large, well furnished and very comfortable. the food is really good and the staff are pleasant and responsive.
so what's the problem?
our first night was on the top floor of the new wing - 614. the rooms are a little smaller than beneath, but that is not really a problem. the problem is the window - at this level the rooms are "room in the roof" style, and there is a dormer window. as these are difficult to fit curtains to, there are blinds. but these don't keep the light out and we found it very difficult to sleep as it gets light exceptionally early!
in fairness when we asked to be moved they did arrange a different room, and it was all done in an efficient and friendly manner. however as we were checking out we noted someone else at reception complaing about the same issue!
so if you like a dark room to sleep in be careful where you are allocated, but apart from that this really is an excellent hotel.
