A very stylish, centrally located hotel. Lovely modern finish, the design is very well done and the rooms are finished to a very high standard. I had an attic room on the 4th floor and was expecting quite a small room but I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The bathroom was huge, with an excellent shower and very fluffy, luxurious towels. The room had a small desk so I was able to work in the evenings. The wifi was quite strong in the room but they had provided cable internet access as well, so I was able to work without worrying about the internet access dropping.
The bed was great - really comfortable with great pillows, I slept very well. I wasn't disturbed by any outside noise when sleeping although, I did notice a lot of noise coming from the room next door one night. It seemed to be magnified through the bathroom and was quite loud. Luckily they stopped pretty quickly when I knocked and asked, otherwise it would have been quite disturbing.
I was a little disappointed with the staff, they didn't seem particularly helpful when asked about local transport options. I asked for directions to my office using public transport and was told to get a taxi, despite the fact that there was a tram round the corner that stopped outside the office. I got a similar response when I asked another staff member for directions elsewhere. I know it's a small issue, but I do expect hotel staff to be able to help with directions and be knowledgeable about transport options in the area.
The only other negative was the breakfast charge. It wasn't included in the price, which is quite surprising given the prices charged for a room. They charged a pretty hefty €23.50 for a buffet breakfast - a ludicrous price given the main meals in the restaurant are cheaper than this!
On the whole, a very stylish, classy hotel.
