We'd seen it featured prominently during the televised Grand Prix and now, just a few days later, we were spending a night at this unique location. The hotel is a striking structure, straddling the racing track and adjacent to the stands, pit lanes and the marinas which are all part of the infrastructure of GP racing.
Having been quickly and efficiently checked in, we were led to our fifth floor rooms. And what rooms! Cool, spacious, luxurious and immaculate...and with a balcony that overlooked the track and marina. We had been warned that there was GP2 practising taking place, and outside the noise was raucous and cracklingly loud. But the well-sealed door and efficient double glazing effectively eliminated the outside activity.
We made use of the smaller rooftop pool - a delightful location, even allowing for the buzz of cars circulating far below us. The pool is clean and run with attentive service that includes staff arranging recliners and towels for you and bringing complimentary drinks and ice creams.
In the evening we visited the Amici italian restaurant within the hotel and were impressed by both the quality of service and of the excellent food.
Recommended? Yes of course, but be aware of the location and be prepared for the noise and excitement of motor racing!
