Generally very good. Mostly pleasing modern style, although there was a little too much shiny dark brown wood-effect around the place for my liking.
We enjoyed the executive room / lounge deal, including a buffet at lunchtime and drinks and buffet in the evening. The food and wine were both better than we thought they might have been, so we ate in several times. Breakfast was good, too - we had freshly made omelettes and coffee, as well as the items in the warmers.
We started in a room on 29th floor, which was large and had a view over the old town. Unfortunately, it also came with a noisy fan in the heating system and some strange knocking noises from what I think was the restaurant above. So we moved to a room on 27th floor, which was a little smaller, but quieter and with what I thought was a better view of the harbour. I liked the greenish glass bathroom wall - it gave the room some character.
The pool was quite large and well set up - it was typical of the hotel to have bathrobes for all guests as well as snacks and drinks available. There was very good service with particularly pleasant and helpful staff everywhere.
On the down side, it was a bit hard to get the room warm enough in the day and cool enough at night - not sure why. And the bathroom taps / sinks were badly designed - almost too little room to get your hands under and the washbasin was needlessly large and slow to empty. Probably hard to clean, too, because of the right angles all over the place. The shower was weak. I am not a fan of the ridiculous large circular overhead shower head anyway, however funky it looks, but this was a particularly poor example.
But don't let any of that put you off - it was, all in all, very good experience!
