I stayed here for a conference for five nights. The location, as others have remarked, is really ideal. Everything you could want is within five minutes walk. Also noted by others is the friendliness of the staff; they really were curteous and helpful at all times, even memorizing my name. The breakfast is delicious, even if it does not contain hot items; but who needs American-style hot cereal when you have delicious fresh fruit, nice pastries and breads, prosciutto, bocconcini, smoked salmon, etc. The room was confy, nicely air conditioned, and airy.
My only real complaint was that the internet was not included in the room and had to be bought extra at an exhorbitant 20 Euros for 24 hours. Message to management: people are paying top dollar for this place, and internet service is now such a necessary standard facility that it should just be included. There was free internet available in the business centre, but inexplicably it blocked Facebook (message to management number 2: get with the program! I'm in my fifties and I use Facebook, so imagine what younger people think!).
Apart from this annoyance, all in all, this is a very good place, if you can afford it (someone else was paying for my room, or else I am not sure I would have splurged).
