Service level is excellent and unquestionably 5-star, with staff who are polite and in abundance. Check in was very fast.
Rooms are typical cookie cutter shape/layout hotel rooms, albeit well furnished ones (however, quality wise can still be topped, for example by the Park Hyatt Hamburg). One observation quality wise however was the use of white plastic electrical sockets (which seemed a bit cheap, metal ones would be more in keeping). The bathroom was a good size with marble floors and shower walls. L'Occitane soaps and shampoo were provided. The air conditioning cooled and heated the room relatively quickly compared to other hotels I've stayed in.
The bed was comfortable. Use of the TV internet is chargeable (which I found somewhat inappropriate considering the cost of the room and that some other 5-star hotels, such as the Rocco Forte Edinburgh, don't charge extra for this).
Room service was excellent. The menu is the same as the "cafe" downstairs and prepared to a high standard (you are eating a restaurant meal in your room). The restaurant and bars themselves were exclusive looking places. Piano music played in the bar, which appeared to be filled with a somewhat elderly crowd.
This hotel is definitely 5-star and I recommend it, but it can still be topped.
