. A new hotel, that started to be fully operational now. Is in the same sophisticated class of the Sofitel brand, with a lot of show that makes it unique.
Large & generous spaces, large rooms, with possibility to open the "wall" between the room and the bath, a wall masked as a nice folding arabesque. Nice & very good quality accessories & cosmetics.
The design is refined, with hi-tech equipment. Internet works fine.
Services are at a top level, prompt, professional and very friendly.
The food is fine, but nothing spectacular, unfortunately, to be in the line of the hotel atmosphere and services. The chef is fine, good dishes, but I think here can be more improvement as imagination. I noticed almost same type of food at dinner as was at lunch time. Some dedicated dinner nights (as Sheraton - that is across Sofitel does) I think that will be welcome.
The meeting & conference rooms are fine, well equipped, in the same class of such hotel, with very good snacks and beverages for the breaks.
As suggestion: everyone is expecting in such actions to find the means to take notices; would be better to replace the pencils that cannot be re-sharpen with some ballpoint pens.
As a remark: the swimming pool, very clean and well maintained otherwise, is sunny afternoon time, so was a pity could not be used in the morning time, before to get too hot during this period.
I really appreciated the stay in the hotel and I recommend it for any corporate actions or individual ones, of course if your budget affords to stay in such location.
