This is probably one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in - especially for Europe. The location is awesome, the room was very nice, comfortable, very spacious. Bathroom was terrific with dual sinks - very handy. AC worked wonderfully. We went ahead and splurged for the superior terrace room - a two room suite - and it was worth every penny! It was so nice to sit on our private balcony (which had a chaise, table with 2 chairs, retractable canopy) in the morning to have coffee and pastry and in the evening to watch the sun set. Room was very quiet especially considering we were right in front of the elevator.
We had breakfast in the hotel the last morning and it was not expensive as they were running a special. The selection was very nice, complete and the food was good.
The room had a water boiler but they didn't supply coffee-just tea. We may have been able to get coffee from the front desk but as we had brought our own Starbucks Via, we didn't need it.
The room had wonderful waffle robes and slippers, large comfy towels and every possible toiletry you could imagine. We even had a bidet.
As is usual for Europe, there were no wash clothes but as seasoned travelers, we knew that and brought our own.
Had a nice roof top sunning area. There is no pool but a large hot tub. Lots of lounge space to relax.
The staff was friendly, the hotel was modern, very clean and had interesting design elements. We were stunned at how inexpensive it was for what we got.
Location was very close to the metro, close to many tourist areas. Area felt very safe, even late at night.
It is a highly recommend. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
consider the splurge for the balcony room as it was well worth the extra Euro.
