Hotel is very nice, build with high quality finishings. Excellent bed and pillows.
Great shower room with a window wall towards the bedroom.
Breakfast food was great, with lots of cooked and fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and sweets. The staff was not that well prepared or friendly in this restaurant and was clearly not capable of handling a full set of tables. As an example you tell a waiter that there is no more coffee and he tells you to go inform another waiter as this is not his job :)
Toilets are missing a brush and they are far from the shower.
Room service personnel could be better trained with a system of what they have to check/do and should sometimes vacuum the place - I have not seen this done in a 2 weeks stay!
Unfortunately most of the furnitures that have legs has some very dangerous metal spikes in the lower sides. One night I cut my foot very badly in one of these and I had to limp in pain for more than a week. A friend from another room also had a close miss and only scratched his ankle on one of these things.
