We booked a long stay through Small Luxury Hotels and got an upgrade to a larger room with kitchenette when checking in. All very comfortable and cozy, with nice furniture and lightning. The hotel have spent some time on the details, like Valhrona chocolate in the mini bar and complimentary Evian, coffee and a lounge CD in the rooms. Staff is responding quickly to every question. The hotel offered free wifi and that was one of the reasons for us to select it.
The bathroom leaves some things to wish for, I would have liked some branded products instead of the regular no brand hotel stuff. (There was a free trial for a face moist spray, a nice feature). Only 1 big towel per person. And those design hotel showers with only a small glass cover always drives me crazy, water all over the room after every shower.
What makes this hotel a 4 instead of a 5 is the breakfast. Only a small cold breakfast is included and you can order hot breakfast items etc at additional cost (and additional waiting time). I'm allergic to gluten and asked for some gluten free alternatives on the first day, but the hotel didn't have that and did not offer to get it (since we were staying a week). All 5 star hotels I stayed at all over the world had gluten free products.
Overall this is a very nice hotel, situated in the Bergs area with some nice restaurants and cafes, and 5-10 minutes walking time from the old city or the art nouveau area. I would recommend it!
