.We had a so so experience in this hotel. The location is great and stuff is very friendly The room itself was ok, certainly not a 5 stars room and the shower is a bit strange and not very comfortable. Breakfast is just ok with super slow service but the main problem is the noise from the street. There are a couple of very loud bars just opposite the room and sleeping was impossible because it was so loud and noisy in our room until very late at night. Upon arrival the reception lady told us it is her favorite room, but for us it wasn't favorable at all There are very few amenities in the room so charging 2 euro for an espresso capsule is just petty

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am sad to hear that you got disturbed from the noise eventhough our rooms have an exccelllent soudproof isolation when windows are closed. I will personaly check what happened and address the issue. For the espresso capsule which is part of the mini bar items, we took your comment very seriously and we have waved from now on the charge for the espresso coffee making it free of charge for our beloved guests. Your comments are always welcome and help us improve. Warm Regards, Karl A. Chehab

Excellent!! Great hospitality, great location! We love the hotel The staff are amazing. We went for shopping and left our bags at the front desk, when we were back the front desk manager put our bags in the car. So nice of her. They allow us to leave the car at the hotel front without paying. Great service! We will recommend our friends to stay here as well. Thank you so much 🙏🙏

This is a nice hotel I agree with most reviews. Great staff, nice breakfast, great location. At the same time, I am not sure I will come back. please be minded: Not all rooms are the same. Rooms that are street facing are both a plus and a minus: overlooking the action, but noisy Some rooms have only a small shower. Other rooms, that are not street facing, are dark, but comfortable. Service is great, staff is friendly. Bed is good Shower is not great Amenities are good A/C system is good Facilities are modern
