I couldn't quite make up my mind about this hotel. On one side, it has a great location and amazing views, and the room size is also good with modern furniture and great amenities, and I have to say very impressive windows and decor in general. On the other, not two rooms were alike. I stayed there on a business trip with 14 people, so we had a total of 15 rooms. Only the rooms from the 5th floor up have a view. the rest only overlook a small garden and a wall. Some rooms have sofas, others don't. Some have balconies, others don't. Some are much smaller than others. We're talking about regular rooms at the same price.
What the rooms were lacking was coffee/tea facilities. They're happy to bring hot water to your room if you ask for some, but you don't get your own kettle. Since this is a priority for me, I bought one. Also the internet. Every time you let your pc hibernate or put your phone down, you had to log on again! That was such a nuisance, and I wish the hotel would find a better way to manage their wi-fi.
The restaurant was good. breakfast without much variety, lunch and dinner sometimes great sometimes just fine.
The staff I can't praise enough. Everyone was helpful and friendly. They made all the difference.
The hotel is good, but for the price I would expect better. I would stay there again if only for the views and great service.
