The hotel does fit clearly into the five-star luxury segment. The lobby is done to a high standard and looks suitably impressive, and the location is ideal. So far so good. Our minor criticisms are the following.
1. The room we had was smaller than would be expected and had slightly outdated decoration.
2. They will try to charge you for wifi - always a no no in my opinion, and just means I have to walk outside to a cafe.
3. Their checklist of restaurant recommendations, all of which are supposed to be of a high standard, is in fact a mixed (and somewhat biased) bag. In our case one was brilliant but with the other they really should have known better and we basically wasted an evening out.
All in all a good five star but could have been be a great one.
