We stayed 2 nights in this luxury hotel. 650 Euros per night...
On the whole, our feeling is this is a bit expensive for what you get in the end. Still, we will always remember this stay, like those in Imperial Hotel New Delhi, Rafles in Singapore, Majestic Hotel in Melaka, etc.
The service is excellent, even outstanding. Staff is smiling and customer focused. The hotel is beautiful, a piece of history. Rooms are very nice, with a beautiful furniture, excellent bed, very good pillows, excellent equipment (TV, Hifi, Wifi, etc.), large range of amenities, very good products (shower gel, shampoo, etc.), very quiet environment, free minibar, etc. View on Rhin river is beautiful.
But for such a high rate you only have a shower, not a bathroom, no car park (the hotel charges 33 Euros per day for the private car park near the hotel), no lounge, no swimming pool and a gym which is one of the smallest ever seen in such a high standard hotel... really small...
Breakfast is very good/excellent with (high) quality products. But I would say you get the same quality in a Grand Hyatt or a Conrad. So breakfast is according to the standard of such hotels.
The restaurant La Brasserie is really good, even excellent, with a high end cuisine and very good wines.
The lobby bar offers a hot chocolate "Ovomaltine" (low quality...), which is weird in such a Leading Hotel of the World.
Despite those problems, we recommend to stay at least once in this hotel as this is part of things to be done in life, when you can afford it :)
