It is a fantastic 4 star hotel, very modern, clean and trendy. The staff was nice, friendly and helpful.
The room was very comfortable and quite big, it had everything that should be in a 4 star hotel. The bathroom had an interesting shower cabin. As there is enoteca (wine cellar) in the hotel, there are wine glasses in the room. I also liked design of the room and modern flat screen TV with some special features. Internet is fast and free of charge.
You can visit sauna for free in the morning.
Breakfast was really good! There was plenty of different things, cold and hot, salty and sweet. Everything was tasty. I was particularly impressed by possibility to drink fresh juice and great cappuccino/macchiato/hot chocolate for breakfast.
Location is very good too, you can easily walk to all major attractions (including central train and bus stations), but stay not in a crowded area at the same time. There are some cafes and restaurants nearby (check out the garlic restaurant!) and a supermarket around the corner. The neighbourhood is quite artistic with small galleries and shops of modern art. You can reach Synebrychoff museum and park in 2 minutes.
I think this hotel is a great choice for both business and tourist travel. And I'll definitely stay there again!
