You have to be really keen on design to give this hotel a good rating. If you like darkly furnished rooms, minimalistic designer light fixtures and bird size main courses, this hotel is for you.
The fancy shower didn't work, so we had to use the hand held alternative. The light over the sink was so minimalistic that you had to put on your makeup in semi darkness. The tv (Bang&Olufsen, of course) could possibly be swung so that you could watch from the bed, but we couldn't figure out how.
The biggest disappointment, though, was the so-called three course meal. The appetizer was a one-bite duck something (uncertain as to what - overheard other guest question it, too). The main course was smaller than a normal appetizer. The desert was good and reasonably portioned.
On the plus side: good location, really good mattress (Jensen, of course - but the fancy heating system was out of order - we were not able to turn down the heat at night), and friendly staff. Also, the breakfast was really good (we were starved due to the stingy dinner the night before).
