We stayed there a week in mid september a week or so after they had opened. We had to pay in advance for the week which is a bit unusual, we then have to pay twice since we have to settle the minibar too.
To begin with my biggest problem was the weak air condition, if you enjoy sleeping in a cold room it could be a problem, it's so weak that it uses 2-3 hours to bring the temperature down 7-8 degrees. But eventually we climatised so the last 4 nigths we slept well.
Towards the end of the stay the one major problem was beginning to emerge. The hotel was starting to fill up with guests towards the weekend and from Thursday on you could only shower for 3 minutes without flooding the entire room.
On the last day, my girlfriend showered before me and when I showered after her I saw clear evidence of sewage coming up from the drain, it was quite gross, and I didn't shower. Earlier in the week I asked one of the cleaning ladies what the problem was and if it could be fixed but apparently it was the pipes in the hotel that was the problem.
Thats a major issue and escalated when the hotel filled up, other than that the hotel was quite nice, nice furnitures, balcony, veruy nice location.
It's not worth buying the hotel breakfast if your a tourist as there's plenty of excelent choices to buy much cheaper than the 38 euroes for a couple at the hotel.
I wouldn't recomend the hotel before they've fixed the pipes, as showering in sewage is not acceptable for a 4 star hotel.
