The hotel is situated in an upmarket residential area, within easy walking distance of several areas of interest, many of the museums, a multitude of restaurants and the 'designer' shopping area. Transport is within easy reach with tram stops for different lines at either end of the street.
We arrived at the hotel mid-afternoon to be told we had been allocated an executive room in the basement. We asked if there was any chance of a move to an upper floor but unfortunately, the hotel was fully booked. Having read some of the other reviews, we were somewhat concerned that it would be noisy in the basement, however, the only thing we actually found to be a slight downside was the subterranean style windows which, being the middle of a particularly grey winter spell, did not allow a huge amount of natural light into the room.
On our way back out of the hotel later that afternoon, we asked if there was any chance of a move to another room the following night and the extremely helpful young chap behind the desk quickly obliged in allocating us a room on the top floor for the following evening. The move went without hitch and the new room had a huge panoramic window spanning the whole width affording us great views across the rooftops of the city.
Both rooms were tastefully decorated and as some reviews have mentioned, the beds were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms (exec rooms) were modern with jacuzzi baths, rain shower, and television!
We did not make use of the honesty bar facilities nor did we take breakfast as we preferred to try out some of the many eateries and bars around the nearby canals.
This hotel provided a great base for our short stay and will be our definite choice when we return in the summer!
