This was to be the highlight of our trip, instead it turned out to be something of a dissappointment. It IS a luxury hotel and yes it is very beautiful with a wonderful location by the river but still it did not give us that "wow-feeling" that the previous hotels had given us on this trip. The room, with the most wonderful view over the river, was nice but felt somehow a bit old, and as we could not figure out how to open the window( not sure if it was supposed to be opened) the smell in the room was not the freshest. But the big bed was very comfortable and so was the big bathroom. The breakfast and the location for it by the river was very nice. Lots of really good food and it was very peaceful to enjoy it while looking at the boats passing by on the river. The staff was nice and polite, but somehow not as genuine as we had experienced at the other places. But maybe that`s the attitude they are supposed to have in this kind of old fashioned 5-star hotel.
