There is a great deal to like about this hotel. The staff were unfailingly pleasant, patient, and polite. The location is near the train station, tram stops, and good restaurants. The room was spacious by European standards and was kept spotless by a team of professional housekeepers. As many other reviews have noted, the beds are a pure joy, and not a noise was heard when the lights went out.
Not everything, of course, is perfect. The air conditioning was anemic, to say the least and while it kept the room comfortable, the only cover on the bed was a fairly heavy douvet---far too heavy for the room's temperature. It would have been nice to have at least a sheet to pull up over one's self. While the housekeepers did keep the room and bath spotless, they seemed to consider towels and soap the coin of the realm and were hesitant to part with either commodity. We had one small soap provided when we arrived and even that was taken during one cleaning and none left to replace it. Likewise, even though it was obvious there were two individuals occupying the room, in the middle of our seven day stay they only left enough towels for one. Our biggest complaint, however, would be the lack of bed linens appropriate for the room temperature.
One final word of advise: this didn't happen to us but we witnessed it. Don't wait until the taxi is waiting to take you to the airport to discuss your bill with the staff.
