We stayed at Hotel Bristol at the end of December and again in January. The first time we had a room on the 5th floor and everything was fine. The 2nd time we had a room on the 3rd floor. It's quite clear that it was in need of refurbishment. The floor in the bathroom flooded while we showered, the air conditioning system was so loud that it was impossible to sleep (and no it wasn't possible to turn it off... see picture), etc. At 11.30pm we went to the reception and asked for a different room. The answer was a simple "no" (apparently, they didn't have any available double rooms that night.... (but according to their own website they had some)). First thing in the morning the following day we talked to someone else and asked if it was possible to move to a different room. This time, the guy was very helpful and gave us a new room straightaway. The new room, on the 5th floor, was great and you could tell it had been refurbished.
The hotel itself is great but make sure you ask for a room which has been recently refurbished and avoid rooms on the street side.
