I booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews but was very disappointed... I was expecting a grand type hotel but instead my first impression was the opposite. When I entered the reception area all looked very small, almost claustrophobic. The reception/lounge/lift area is a long, very dark corridor. Yes the decoration is nice but that is about it. To give you a feel of what I was expecting is a piano player in the evening playing in the lounge, people dressed up in the evening going out for dinner but instead you are greeted by herds of bus tourists.
Lifts are slow. I found my room small. The bathroom was small, shower cubicle almost falling apart, not really clean, low water pressure. Not many amenities. One small bottle of shower gel per day for 2 people.... Old lcd tv with low reception quality. Curtains do not darken room enough.
There is no turn down service and no newspaper on your door in the morning.
And then the breakfast.... I skipped it the last day as all tables were occupied each time. I had to sit next to the bar while waiters were passing coffee pots over the bar counter, almost over your head... Very stressful and not what you would expect. On two occasions, other people took my table while I was just one minute away to get something from the buffet. In other words you are not seated, people just sit wherever they want, some filling their rucksacks with whatever they can grab to last the day..... Business lounge did not solve the problem as only limited breakfast is offered there.
And then the internet issue. As internet is free downstairs people sit wherever they can, even on the stairs and floors to get the free internet. I suggest to grant internet access everywhere for free of nowhere to prevent this from happening.
Overall not what you would expect from a hotel in this price range. (350 eur a night)
