This hotel is superbly placed, being in a wonderful square and truly central. One can walk everywhere. It purports to be a 5* hotel which is pushing it a bit, to my mind.
Our room, No.307, was in the eves with 2 dormer windows. Either you have them shut and have no fresh air, or you have one open and hear the church bells.....every hour, the full number, and a ding on the half hour. Not too bad, and certainly copeable with. But the floor was not particularly clean and neither was the carpet outside the lift.
The bathroom is the weirdest thing. It had an opaque, translucent glass door, right opposite the bed. The door neither fits tight nor has a lock. If you need to go to the loo on the night and put the light on, it will wake people in bed. There was no extending magnifying, make-up mirror, despite the main room being FILLED with mirrors. And although there were lots of towels, they were all of a mean size; certainly not 5* type towels. The sink unit and hair-drier were just cheap. The bumph said we'd get bathrobes, but they were not apparent. When we went to ask we were told that the management had decided to cancel that 'perk' but if we really wanted them, of course we could have them. And 2, fairly small bath robes duly arrived...not plush things by any means.
We sat outside for lunch and felt the food was expensive for what it was and that the whole hotel was odd. The entrance is through the restaurant and you find the reception desk behind a glass wall at the end of the bar. It was not always manned and we certainly had no idea who was a member of staff and who was just sitting having a chat.
It was a shame because the position of the hotel is fantastic, but it's too odd for me to want to stay there again. My husband's line was that it's a hotel designed by young people, who seem to be going for quirkiness rather than use.
