This hotel is in a great part of town: close to conference areas, near the museums and fab bars. It is the most beautiful, light-filled hotel, with balconies at the back, and rooms over leafy streets at the front. There are tea-making facilities and a fridge in each room. The beds are sumptuous. The staff is just lovely. I would really recommend this hotel. There is a sitting room to work in on the ground floor if you wake before everyone else (the staff offered me an extra coffee when I was working there one morning!), free wifi (which really works - fast connection), and the hotel is open 24 hours.
If you get a chance - ask if you can have a room that is not adjacent to the lifts, as the noise carries a little (as with most elegant, historical hotels that have wisely added elevators). It is slightly noisy in the morning with the room-cleaning staff happily answering their mobile phones in the hallways at 9am. Fine if you are checking out, but not so great if this is your one chance of a sleep-in. But this is a pretty common thing in hotels, so no real complaint here.
Breakfasts are a little expensive (if you are a light eater at breakfast) but over-the-top yummy with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheeses, bacon and eggs, sweet croissants and serious coffee. From my point of view, it would be great if they let you have a coffee and croissant for half the price.
Really loved having a hotel with plaster roses on the ceilings and elegant tiled bathrooms with all products supplied and thick towels. There is a real sense of history. Would recommend this elegant and chic hotel to anyone who needs a sense of calm in the midst of travel. The people who work there go out of their way to enhance the fun of travel.
