Stayed here for just one night on a business trip. The location is very convenient smack right in the middle of George square and 50 meters from my meeting place. I only found out later that the train station is also only 2 minutes walk hidden behind the square. Upon entering the hotel appears small and the reception is manned by a single staff. However he was very efficient and managed to somehow service everyone who was queuing up. The hotel and room were designed with older style wooden furniture and decor which gave it a nice, typical rustic feeling. Taking the lifts up to the higher floors and you will quickly notice that the hotel isn't so small after all. The rooms are clean and most previous reviews mention the free items in the minibar (all the items are complimentary) which certainly is a welcomed surprise unlikely to be found in other hotels nowadays. There was also whiskey but since I don't drink I didn't manage to enjoy that! Ate at the "Windows" rooftop restaurant twice for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was delicious and breakfast had all the choices as well. Great value for money as well.
