Arrived around 5pm at the hotel and checked in immediately. We had two rooms booked. When we had checked into our rooms we were given 2 rooms on different floors - one on the 6th floor and the other on the 8th floor. We asked for this to be changed so we could be on the same floor. Unfortunately, due to us late checking in, most of the rooms were taken up! We left our luggage with the receptionist as the concierge would bring these to our rooms. I had told the receptionist specifically, which suitcases were to go to what room. Once the concierge brought our suitcases to us I had noticed our bags were muddled up! I did not bother calling to get this sorted out and just sorted out the cases myself! However, our room on the 8th floor was a bit further away compared to the 6th floor which was right outside the elevator!
8th Floor -Twin room - Was very spacious, which we were extremely satisfied with! We even had an outdoor balcony. Perfect! The bathroom was spacious and consisted of a shower, bathtub with shower and basin. The only thing which put me off was the toilet was in a seperate room on it's own which does not make sense! There was not even a basin! It just did not make sense! Beds were very comfortable!
6th Floor - Not as spacious as the 8th floor and there was no shower on it's own!
Generally, would like to say the housekeeping in this hotel was superb! Even in the evening time the room was re-cleaned with fresh towels and rubbish emptied! Totally loved the cleanliness -hardly any hotels do 2 cleans in one day! Enjoyed our sweet treat surprises we were left in the evening from the housekeeper, nice treat.
Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel had it's own casino next door, which was great for entertainment and was the busiest for the Salsa dancing in the evening! Perfect and close to shopping and restaurants! Fantastic being so central even the train station was 15 minutes walk from behind our hotel on the Rue Congrees, which was great for day trips to Monaco and Cannes.
We had the buffet breakfast one evening and sat indoors in the AC. We felt there was not many staff to help with getting tea refills etc compared to outdoors. There was not much selection for the buffet breakfast and I would not say it's value for money.
Overall, excellent for location and heart of the city centre. Perfect for day trips as well.
