Overall the hotel was very nice, the breakfast was pleasant and it was a great value, however it didn't really feel like a 5 star hotel. Let's get into details:
The reception and entrance
The reception was underwhelming, very simple and clean with somewhat slow service. There is an open area with modern and functional furniture. Internet is free in the reception which is a common plus in this part of the world. You have to pay for Internet in the rooms.
Decent size rooms with a reasonable decor. Playing on the history of the place. The bed is simple, the TV smallish. Overall OK but without the luxurious feel that 5 star hotels have in larger European cities.
I wrote a separate review on the restaurant (El Claustro) but suffice to say that the breakfast was complete, somewhat simple (common yogurt brands, varied fruit but nothing fancy and a smallish buffet) so again overall OK but just that
Overall I felt that the hotel had an ideal location, close to all the places I needed to go to. Other than that everything was just OK...but the hotel will not be what you remember from the trip...
