Giving a review is all about expectations. And this review is my expectation of a 5 star hotel after previously stayed at Kempinski, W and Astoria.
We stayed in a superior room for 4 nights and the room was spacious enough. The bed was really good and gave a really good sleep quality. Medium sized bathroom with everything you expect from a 5 star hotel (Bathrobes, amenities etc). The WiFi, at least in our room, was working good and kudos for complimentary coffee and tea. The receptionist and concierge were really helpful and friendly. Except for the mini bar, the bar and restaurant is reasonably priced. (Compared to the other mentioned hotels).
The interior design is a matter of personal taste, but the interior made the room extremely dark. Even with all lights on.
The worst part was the breakfast. Not even close to a 5 star standard. And the hot meal, if you come a bit late, was just some (few) dry pieces of something. Not many choices of yoghurts and they ran out of muesli. (For the next day as well) Not much variety on bread and no bread rolls except croissants. The coffee seems to have been on the thermos for a while. We also ordered coffee, a bit better but not much. There were plenty of free tables, but on some occasions no clean tables were available.
The bar: I was there in 2 occasions, just to buy 2 glasses of prosecco to bring to our room. I would expect at least one smile. Instead it just made me feel a bit uncomfortable.
But anyway, I would certainly recommend this hotel. Just lower your expectation a bit
