I am a seasoned traveler and not easily impressed.
The first thing you notice is the amazing fragrance throughout the hotel. Smells get me sick but this was so light and fresh with such a tranquil quality to it, whomever picked it really knew what they were doing. This choice was not by accident.
That goes for every other detail in the hotel. I liken it to the gramercy park hotel NYC. But this hotel was very calming and the service is is top notch.
The staff is genuinely friendly and warm.
We had a jr suite, the room is generous for a family of three in Europe, I am aware that American standards are different, and have read reviews that complain about the room size. Those people should do their homework on euro travel. This room is above average size and very comfortable.
Lovely sitting room with spectacular views on top floor. We sat and enjoyed pre dinner drinks.
Breakfast is over the top! A vegan would have no problem they have a wonderful assortment of hot and cold dishes that would satisfy all. The wait staff are also attentive and very eager to make your holiday one you would not forget.
This hotel is a must on any bucket list. Amazing. Thank for a lovely holiday.
