Buffet breakfast is expensive and has nothing substantial. Reception staff were not friendly or helpful. The only outstanding staff was a young bellboy. The only thing this hotel has... More

I love to stay in hotels that have character; however there's a difference between character and old! This hotel has the character but it needs to be refurbished so you don't feel like you are in an old and dilapidated place. It had a stale odor all over. The staff at the front desk weren't that friendly either. One particular... More

Well past its expiry date, the hotel is in a great location, close to shops and many great areas. The hotels is dated, clearly there is an opportunity to upgrade the hotel. The décor is nice 1960’s, all has the wear of time. The morning breakfast buffet requires that you arrive early as soon as it is set up, otherwise... More

Fantastic entrance referring to its former grandeur, lots of copper and marble , a gin-bar, a restaurant and a well stocked breakfast buffet. So depending on the room rate you might have a good deal (we paid 120 euros for 3 pax in appartment room). But not everything is functioning as it should. Airco did not work, very small elevators...
