My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and we were both extremely happy with the hotel. It's a nice hotel in a convenient location right across from a metro station. There is also a beautiful pool in the hotel that apparently few people know about, because there is nobody there in the mornings.
Our room was very nice and clean and well maintained. However, as others have mentioned too, it's really the service that stands out. The staff is very friendly and they try really hard to make you happy. It's things such as calling you by your last name and sending somebody up immediately when you ask for laundry to be picked up that really make a difference.
We had an issue with the TV in the bathroom and although we only brought it up on the third day since we hadn't had time to use it and thought it was easy to fix, they actually offered us a new room. I was very surprised that they took this so seriously, because I definitely hadn't made a big deal out of it. In fact, I felt kind of bad and told them that we didn't need a room change and that they really shouldn't worry about it. However, when we came back to the room after dinner, there was a bottle of champagne, a plate with macaroons and a note apologizing for the broken TV in the bathroom. I think this was very impressive and it shows how much they care about their guests.
The only thing that didn't seem at the same high level of quality as the rest of the hotel was the breakfast buffet. Nothing major wrong with it, but little things, such as asking for "coffee" 3 times and getting something different each time, and crepes that were lukewarm. At any other hotel you wouldn't have noticed any of this.
