Only the second 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in (thanks to offers on Booking.com). Hotel Anel more than met expectations. Room was absolutely huge with a kitchen area and hallway. More like an appartment, in fact! Everything was extremely clean and well-furnished – complete with extravagant coffee machine (but no coffee to use!). Worst aspect was unquestionably the... More

I stayed here for 6 nights earlier this month. Having read the previous reviews, I agree with the coffee concerns but as said, you can ask for a cappuccino or espresso with no problem. This is a beautifully clean hotel and the decor is decadent, the art stunning and the facilities fantastic. I asked for an upgrade, this was honoured... More

Great location, good pool (not open long enough) and nice breakfast. Given the nice breakfast it's odd that the coffee is awful instant coffee, but you can ask for real coffee (i.e. espresso). Super-helpful and professional daytime staff (compared to the night staff). Beware the 'free' upgrade to the suites on the third floor, which I had the misfortune of... More

The restaurant has special food and very tasty, highly recommend it too. Gave it four stars because of some noise and night and early morning (probably some issues, but they... More

Not the type of hotel for someone used to Hiltons and Sheratons. Actually, the girst impression is probably not the best. However, it provides a lot at low cost. Excessively spacious. Two tvs. Fine bathroom. Quiet enough if not a room facing the avenue. Free wifi. Breakfast included. Free access to fitness room - very decent and sauna. Slippers, robe... More
