An interesting, clean looking and very modern hotel that houses a surprising collection of contemporary art housed in an old completely restored building in the center of town.
The reception is attended by 2 very pleasant and gracious assistants. Their PCs are placed on a glass covered table that contains thousands of multicolored tiny silicon little fellows that appear to support the glass top, a beautiful work of art by itself.
The first two floors display an array of contemporary works of art, as well the elevators and each of the hotel floors.
The room assigned was of an average size, very clean and slick looking, well appointed with new good quality furniture (quite a relief from the cheap furniture encountered in many of the hotel chains), a good size working table with excellent lighting, a 42" flat screen HD TV, a king size bed with a great mattress dressed in first class linen with plenty of pillows. A well stocked mini bar, a Nespresso coffee machine with 3 different coffee capsules (already filled with water). The room was very well illuminated with well thought off light controls. The closet was of average size, equipped with an ironing table.
The bathroom walls were covered with modern white ceramic tiles with a few tastily spaced fun ceramic body parts, such as ears, noses and lips. The counter top was covered with white marble and contained a large rectangular water basin, equipped with first class fixtures. The amenities were all of excellent quality.
Throughout the hotel, the staff was polite, helpful and very attentive; the hotel receptionist even addressed me by my family name.
On one evening, the legendary B.B.King with his entourage was seen registering at the hotel lobby.
