I've stayed in a fair few 5 star hotels, costing around £80 - £200 / night.
This was one of my favourites.
Given the £ to Euro exchange rate it was towards the top of my budget but was worth it.
Will try to avoid what others have covered but cannot resist saying how interesting the building is, inside and out.
Enjoyed the very personal check in service. Hotel seemed quiet but maybe you don't see many people due to the maze of corridors.
Free wireless internet is always handy and the free minibar was excellent. 2x wine, 2x beer, 5x shots, various mixers and water. Not sure why people did not get their's stocked up every night, we were told on arrival (without asking) that it is restocked fully every day and it was (around noon). If it is not restocked then just tell them.
I found the staff excellent, they seemed rightly proud of the building and pleased to be working there.
Wellness centre is very pleasant and was quiet whenever I used it. Pool is small, steam room was out of order, 3 good saunas and an OK hot tub. Had a decent sports massage.
Bar / Restuarant / Breakfast all fairly quiet but I never normally use these facilities anyway. Had breakfast one morning out of laziness, E25 is not cheap but it was very pleasant. Was surprised the hot food in particular was of high quality given that it was quiet.
Hotel allowed me a 1pm checkout at no extra charge, this was much appreciated.
