The hotel is absolutely fabulous on the outside. As others have said, any charm in the entrance is hampered completely by Starbucks, which dominates the ground floor. Initially, we were given a "superior" room with a terrible view of huge ducts in rear courtyard; however, our room was promptly changed upon request. The manager's quick response was very much appreciated. A nice buffet breakfast was included.
The location of the hotel was just great and allowed us to walk to great restaurants and sight-see without incurring expensive taxi fares. Location of the hotel couldn't be more handy to the train station, which is directly across the street. Shopaholics will drool over the fabulous stores in the immediately vicinity. Close-by there are charming old streets with outside dining.
