We found ourselves at this hotel after arriving at the Swissotel next door and finding that they were fully and our booking of 3 weeks previous had been cancelled! That is a review in itself.....
We initially were given a large but very clinical renovated room on the first floor. The room had some peculiarities in that the bed could be folded up into the wall and a large screen could be unrolled in its place. While no doubtedly the room was set up for small meetings or seminars when not being used as a bedroom, it had the ambience and feel of a porno movie set, complete with 16 overhead spot lights. (not far from the red light district, after all).
After spending 1 disastrous night in there, we complained and were shown an older, unrenovated room on the 4th floor which had a much warmer feel about it, with windows wrapping around 2 sides of the room. Thanks to Manager (Vivien?) for her understanding and helpfulness. We really loved the 2 nights we had in this older room.
We understand this room is due for renovation soon- please don't! It has lovely warmth and character just the way it is.
