A weekend break taken in arctic conditions (i.e. very cold and heavy snow). Would probably be a city best visited when the weather was much warmer. Hotel was described as 5 star and it does have that feel. The restaurants are of a very high quality and would thoroughly recommend the panoramic restaurant on the 18th floor. Leisure facilities were good but lacked a sauna / steam room. Service generally very good and staff helpful (both at reception and in the the bars / rerstaurants). The down side ... could not get hot water (despite their best efforts) in the room on the last two nights (was only there for three); was advised it was because we were on the 16th floor ... may be best not to have such a tall hotel if that is the case.
