I stayed here for two days for business purposes.
I was booked in a business room (n°148). From check-in till check-out everything was just great, very friendly staff!
Hotel location is just perfect, walking distance from everywhere - if it's the train station, the market square or the river side or the shopping and restaurant streets. If you're not much of a walking type, you can take the tram just in front of the hotel. You mobility ticket is offered by the hotel for the length of your stay and even allows you to take bus n° 50 to the euroairport.
The room was great. Room 148 is on the first floor just above the lobby at the front of the hotel. Only disadvantage of the room is the fact that it's facing the street and despite the double windows, you can here the street noise quite well (tram, people, cars). The lay-out of the room was a bit strange. When you come in, you have the closets with minibar and safe, etc; then a sort of oversized walk-in closet with an iron and a board; opposite a bathroom with shower, toilet. Then you walk further and come into a room with desk (with Nespresso machine and cups; flatscreen tv; thea making facility) and two cosey chairs. You have here some double doors after which is the bedroom (not much more than a comfortable bed and another flatscreen tv) and the other side there was another bathroom with bathtub and toilet.
Business class rooms have upscale toiletries; bathrobes and slippers; free pay-tv and movies on demand; nespresso machines and cups; free breakfast buffet, free wifi.
Breakfast was nice; but I have had better and more choice. I was missing fresh orange juice. You can have coffee made to order. Breakfast is in the trendy Fellini restaurant.
The hotel is very stylish, design, trendy.
It has a nice swimming pool (large) with sauna and steambath + small outdoor relaxing section.
Fellini: had lunch here. Nice food and service!
