This is definitely a place to stay, it is modern with beautiful view, the staff was professional, helpful, friendly and courteous. Everything was well presented and spic 'n span from the lobby to the room.
The bed was with an extra thick and soft goose down mattress which was so comfortable just like sleeping on clouds:-). The towels and bathrobes were white and clean without any dust and smells form the cleaning products. The bathroom was well stocked with Hermēs products and new towels were provided and room was tidied up at turndown service.
Our room didn't have the great view of the port but we sure enjoyed it at breakfast though. Their breakfast buffet tables were abundantly filled with so many fresh items and very pleasing to the eyes. But best of all, the panoramic view of the old port from the breakfast room, made me enjoyed breakfast even more than usual.
Having said all that, there were two things I didn't like: firstly it was the valet parking, they were not on top of things when we pulled up and waited behind 2 cars and they didn't even notice our arrival until I got out the car and flag one of the guys down, not very classy like the place I must say. However, once we got their attention, they were very prompt at taking care of our luggage and car.
Secondly, the hot water in the shower was not hot enough, it was lukewarm even though we turned it to the max. Luckily the weather was not cold otherwise it would have been disastrous....
Apart from those two things, everything was superb and highly recommended.
Double room runs €300 and breakfast is €26.
