I arrived early and they had a room ready. I was given a choice between two rooms! That was a nice touch. Unfortunately, my luggage did not arrive with me and the staff did their best to try to help. They made calls, erased phone charges, allowed me to use their phone, etc. they helped me find a pharmacy to get basic toiletries. They truly went above and beyond.
Pickup from the airport was arranged by them and went well. My husband had a slight issue, but they corrected the error in an acceptable manner. The room was quiet and clean! No strong perfume odor like so many hotels. Breakfast was ok. My husband enjoyed it. It was a very European spread. The restaurant on the roof was pleasant with good food. Don't try to use your American credit card as their bank can't process it. Charge it to your room or use cash. The chef came around and greeted each customer. It was a truly relaxing dinner overlooking the city with marvelous views.
Across the street is a park. Go for a walk day or night. It was just what a stressed out traveller needed. As you leave, they stand in the door waving goodbye. So sweet! (Ask for a charge converter if needed. They will loan you one). Don't hesitate to stay here. Great location!
