Efficient check-in but that's where it ends. Unbelievably, although charging close to EUR 400 for a single bed room for one night they are unable even to offer guests an iron to iron their shirt. Any hotel that cannot offer even this basic service is realistically little more than a youth hostel in fancy wrapping paper - as the tagline on their website says "A world of its own" - it certainly is... just watch out for what kind of world it is! The irregular touches don't end there - I've been to a few "leading 5 star hotels" but have rarely seen price tags of EUR 8,70 on the bottles of water in the rooms. Perhaps I am just a philistine - after all the bottle is clearly marked as "gourmet water" - but however "refreshing and enjoyable" the water is the price is frankly 'unpleasant and painful'. No doubt the place is a nice little earner for the faceless corporate behind it but if the General Manager really wants to impress business travellers they need to take a long hard look at the fundamentals of what it means to run a hotel that adds value for its guests as well as its owner - substance should come before style.
