Overall, this is probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
The hotel occupies a great location on the banks of the river. With tram and metro stops within 100 yards there is easy access to the main tourist areas if you don't want a 15-20 minute walk.
The moment we walked in we were checked in very promptly by the very friendly receptionist. We were offered a glass of wine and then escorted to our fabulous room by the same lady. The quality of the bedroom and bathroom was superb. The swimming pool,health club etc is very nice and leads onto a lovely sun terrace with sun beds and complimentary tea , coffee, newspapers etc
Every member of staff was very friendly,helpful and professional. They all offered excellent service without being over bearing.
I am a platinum points holder so we were upgraded and probably wouldn't have stayed in an expensive hotel such as this without the benefit of the points. The only slight negative that I would comment on is the quality of food in the brasserie for the price charged. The main course which cost 27 euros, consisted of a fairly small piece of luke warm cod on some peppers and tomato. A bottle of water with the meal cost 8.50 euros. This comment with regards to the food did not detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay and would certainly love to return in the future.
