Had booked a smoking room for two nights for me and my partner to celebrateh my 30th birthday. We chose this hotel based upon location and that we could get a smoking room. When we arrived the room wasn`t ready (we arrived early) but we could leave our bags there and go for lunch while we waited. When we got back we got an upgrade (not sure why, I think there had been some mix-up with the booking or something) so we got a huge room that we instantly fell in love with. It was clean, cosy and suprisingly enough very quiet. We liked it so much we decided to stay another night, and we were so lucky we got to keep the same room.
The hair dryer was broken, we didn`t mind because neither of us were planning using it, but it was still fixed during the first day of our stay, even without us requesting it.
We love this hotel and are already making plans about going back in february next year for my partners birthday. The staff was so friendly and helpful - my vallet was stolen and they were so helpful with both directions to the police station and connecting me with visa to cancel my credit card.
There was one thing though that I found a bit strange - and I`m sure the cleaning staff did to :) My back hurts really bad sometimes and it helps me to lay on the floor when it happens. So the second morning I took my covers with me and fell asleep on the floor, and woke up a few hours later when one of the cleaners was in the room, trying to check if someone was under the cover on the floor. Fair enough, but what I was thinking about later is that when they came into the room, they must have seen my partner still sleeping in the bed. So why they still came in I don`t know - maybe curiosity took over. I don`t see it as a reason to not stay at the hotel - me and my partner got a good laugh wondering what the cleaning staff were thinking when he was in bed and I was on the floor.
Very happy with the stay all over, and I had a great birthday!
