Stayed in this hotel mid September. The hotel was located in a good position, close to most of the tourist attractions. We walked most places, however the Metro subway was just down the street. We were disappointed when we arrived for check in. The male staff member was off hand and with out a semblance of friendliness nor a smile. I have travelled extensively and worked in the hospitality industry for many years and know that a friendly welcome makes a huge difference in a guests perception of a hotel. Having said this Francesca was another staff member at reception who always had a friendly smile and a great personality and it made the world of difference. The breakfast was very good and would satisfy most tastes. The staff at breakfast were friendly except for one day when a staff member who was obviously having a bad day and became irritated because we sat at a table that hadn't been cleared as this was the only one available; a frosty reception and spilt coffee made it abundantly clear to us that we had transgressed one of the dining room rules. The bedroom was large and comfortable, the bathroom was also large which makes me wonder why the shower was barely big enough to squeeze into (and i am no heavyweight) as there is plenty of room in the bathroom to have a shower of a suitable size. The room was very clean and a credit to the housekeeping staff. The WiFi was terrible and dropped out continously; free WiFi shouldn't be advertised if it does not work effectively.
