We arrived at 9:30 am from our river cruising. Our reservations, canal view room, were not available until 1pm so they gave us a complimentary upgrade to an executive suite. What a room! Incredible setup. The room consisted of three different areas: the entrance or living area, separated by a door from the bedroom, separated from the bathroom with a sliding curtain. In the ceiling window shades to black the skylights. An unusual lighting system with a switch at the entrance with different selections for ambience, from daylight to romantic. The on off controlled from a bed switch that took some time to learn. Only one way action will turn lights off and when pressed again on. The AC was remotely controlled. In the bathroom I could not find the sink faucets, but finally found them under and part of a shelf on top of sink. The shower had two separate ceiling mounted shower heads for 2 people to take their bath. It also had an electronically controlled steam bath. And the toilet was incredible. It will clean, wash, dry and massage you. It really did. All this technology took time to learn and we were there for only 2 days. So we had to ask for help and Sebastian will show up in less than 3 minutes. Awesome service.
The hotel also had a small restaurant, decorated in a nice, elegant subdued manner with lots of dark wood, where they served you breakfast and a light lunch. The hotel also recommended nearby restaurants that the owner had visited. If he did not know about it he would not recommend it. Also, on the last day they gave us complimentary breakfast.
The overall technological systems were difficult to operate at first, until you became familiar with them This was the only drawback. But the impeccable and fast service made up for it.
