I can't add enough superlatives to capture the experience at the hotel. Great location, comfortable rooms and above all excellent service. Recently stayed with the family and we all enjoyed the stay. I've stayed at many star hotels around the world and they all can learn about service from folks here.

This hotel is incredible. I have stayed in various hotels around the world but none can match this hotel in the quality of the rooms and the quality of service. My wife and I and our 4 children had the best experience during our overnight stay at this hotel. In summary, it was the best of the 4 hotels we... More

Staff could not have been more polite and helpful. I would mention the reservations team as when we wanted to amend our booking during a very busy period in Zurich, (European Games) and with a full hotel, they still managed to accommodate us by rechecking all bookings until they found the 2 rooms we required.- Just about every other hotel...

I made a booking through booking.com where it'd allowed me to book a triple room & pay for an extra bed so I thought that meant 4 of us were ok. Arrived & only had a triple room (max 3 persons) booked, the staff went out of their way to sort this out for us & another bed was put... More
