This hotel is a 4 star rated hotel. We payed over 400 euros per night for a junior suite overlooking the canal. We stayed 3 nights.
Yes, our room was very nice, large, beautifully decorated and impeccable. Yes, the hotel is in a perfect location. Yes, staff is more or less friendly.
But, there are some buts unfortunately. Like written before, no complementary water in the rooms, no coffee machine or kettle. If you want breakfast in your room, you can have only coffee, tea, bread and pastries. Everything else has to be paid extra. A simple yoghurt, eggs, cheese, ham etc etc will be charged. Even if you can find all these things at the buffet.
Talking about the breakfast buffet. As written before, nothing special. Only the basics. To begin with no freshly squeezed orange juice. Only industrial fruit juices!!! Nothing organic, no goat cheeses, no soy milk etc.
We had a problem with the heating system in our room. It was set on 23,6°, impossible to turn down or off. "No, at this time of the year it's impossible to use the airconditioning" was the answer we got at the reception desk. After 2 nights of suffocating we really insisted to have something done. And finally we were able to sleep in a room at still 20°. But we slept much better.
All in all, we had a nice stay but we weren't overwhelmed.
