While planning our honeymoon, I left my husband in charge of choosing the hotel. We wanted something in a nice neighborhood that was close to a tram stop and somewhat romantic. He chose The Bilderberg, and felt good about his decision, so I went with it. The Bilderberg is in a lovely neighborhood, very close to upscale shopping.. quite a bit more upscale than would ever interest me, and honestly, walking through that area, I felt rather out of place at times. The Bilderberg appears a bit upscale as well.. the lobby is pretty (though very small) and the staff seem to have an "air" about them to match. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and honestly, it is the tiniest room I have ever stayed in in Europe. You could barely walk past each other in the room without being pushed into the bathroom or onto the bed. The charge for WIFI is outrageous, and the TV had very little programming, so bring a book if you're like me and have to wait forever for your spouse to get ready in the morning. It was nice that as a gift, the hotel gave us a complimentary hour in the spa room. We enjoyed that. Other than that, our contact with the staff was minimal. I wouldn't say they were overly friendly, but if we had a question, they could usually help. In retrospect, when we got home and I looked into other hotels in the area for our next trip, I found several really nice B&B's in the area that were a better rate, had free wifi, included breakfast, and were much more spacious. Next time we will go that route.
