Overall a nice stay but you tend to feel that they are struggling maintaining the hotel. Furniture in the room seems to be quite old and has suffered a lot. Having said that, the bed & pillows offer you a WONDERFUL experience and, after all, this is the primary reason of staying in ahotel, isn't it? I could not get away of it and to recover form jetlag, nothing better could have happened. The bathroom is huge and you'll find there absolutely everything you need with many fluffy towels.
Breakfast was not so good, barely no choice, only a la carte options and VERY expensive for what you get. A much better option is to go to any restaurant around (Marathon close by had a very good berakfast for half the price of what is costs at Colette at the Sofitel).
The personnel at the front desk and Colete are a bit too snobbish and not very friendly compared to US usual standard but I must admit that the Concierge was very helpful and nice.
The situation of the hotel is also very good, close to everything in walking distance (from University to old town).
