Although the hotel was very fancy and in a nice location, I thought the staff was arrogant and condescending. I don't know if it was because my husband and I are very young, but the staff answered our questions sarcastically and made us feel like we didn't belong there. Also beware of the small extra charges for everything. For example, you can get a cab off the street as soon as you step out of the doors. But god forbid the concierge gets you a cab - because they add 3 Euros for that. Or if you want to store your bags at the hotel while travelling elsewhere....they charge you for that too. Usually as a guest of a hotel and such a fancy one, you should be able to get these services gratis. Further the staff kept telling us that taking a cab was the best way to get anywhere...when in fact there is a metro stop less than 2 blocks away which is very convenienent! We stopped asking the desk anything and just figured it out ourselves.
