The hotel isn't bad but claiming to be four stars is pushing it. It is probably 3.5 star hotel. I'm well traveled and know what to expect from rooms and amenities and this hotel is not a four star... the room is actually quite large for a European city.
For two days in a row (I'm still staying at the hotel as I write this), there has been no hot water!! The only time my girlfriend or I had hot water for a shower was when she woke up at 6:30AM to take one. From 7 AM to 10 AM there is absolutely no hot water. We called downstairs and they told us to keep the shower running for ten minutes... doesn't work.
Anyway, a good shower is half of what you pay a hotel for besides a good sleep. I definitely would not recommend this hotel during a busy weekend. Possibly when there are less people staying here there might be hot water during the week.
