Lovely little boutique hotel in a very good location next to lovely Restaurants and the Metro close by.
Stayed for 6 nights but was not very happy with the size of the room for such a period of time. On check-in I did go back to Reception to ask for an upgrade but at £100 extra euros per night, it didn't seem worth it and by the way the receptionist described this, didn't sound too convinced. Good hotel to stay if you are travelling for a maximum 3 nights. Housekeeping quite slow, we left the hotel at 10am and asked if the room could be cleaned as we would be back within an hour. Arrived back at 12 and the room was still not cleaned. Asked again and walked about for another hour, came back at 1:45pm, and they had only just started so was not impressed. This was by the same receptionist I asked for an upgrade for so not suprised. (All other staff were very friendly and helpful).
Room was clean, although not to the same standard everyday, and had to request for my bedding to be changed after the 4th night as it hadnt been. TV very small and guest handbook seemed old. Dirty glasses were not cleaned or replaced and on asking for Ice, was told there was none as the machine was broke. Ok, but surely there must be a freezer in the kitchen. Bathroom has a shower and bath, but the water leaks out all over the floor so not sure if that is environmentally friendly.
Restaurant/Lobby area has no life. Nice lighting but far too quiet, a little background music might work. Looks like they do breakfast but you get a good spread for 8euros around the corner.
The hotel are trying and we just had a bad experience this time round. If it wasn't for the location I wouldn't have stayed but don't think I shall return.
