I spent 1 night at this superb hotel in June 2014. It is easily accessible by train from the airport. It is right off the lake and there are many restaurants in the vicinity. The check-in was smooth and the check-out was quick. I was able to bug the train ticket at the hotel itself. The Opera is bang opposite... More

What a wonderful hotel -- the staff is excellent, the food in the restaurant was wonderful, the location is perfect -- I just happened to pick the weekend of an all day street parade (not a parade in the traditional sense -- a horrible drunken drug fest techno rave in the streets).
