We stayed in this hotel before Christmas and after new year. The first night was fine, we were upgraded into a privileged room, but the tv didn't work and neither did the coffee maker. The second time we stayed we had an ordinary room, clean and comfortable but very small, no swinging of any cats here, two papers cups for coffee and two milks, so if you wanted more coffee too bad.
The hotel advertises an all day eating experience"just like home"which means you do everything yourself. The soup was cold so I had to reheat it in the microwave. It was dreadful, supposedly vegetable. But tasteless mush, the bread was hard from sitting out all afternoon. Everything is cold, you could choose to have fois gras with toast...a jar of fois gras from the fridge, make your own toast. For a hotel of this quality and price this shouldn't be offered. Here's the thing if you stay in a hotel you don't want it to be like home when it comes to service.... Breakfast is on the other hand, very good. There are smaller cheaper hotels where the comfort is just as good. But where they cook decent steak frites and serve you...
The hotel has been refurbished, pity the designers didn't stay in the rooms. The bathrooms open directly onto the head of the bed, so that if one person gets up in the night the light shines directly into the head iof the other person. A once grand hotel, in a fabulous location and stay there is convenience is needed.
