Excellent location, memorable experience. The high ceilings took me to another era. The ambience is amazing. I especially appreciated the upgrade to a river view room. Reception is available 24 hours.

The staff go above and beyond in their daily routine. Nothing is too much trouble. The Barman was hands down the most easygoing and genuinely interested in providing the absolute best experience. Location is perfect for walking just about anywhere and the room was always neat and tidy.

Location was the main reason, why I booked this hotel, and at the end this had been the best for me about this accomodation. I am also fond of historic hotels and the front of the building and the white cupola and the black columns on the ground floor exude an early 20th century grandezza.

Unfortunately I didn't book a Heritage Room, which wouldn't have been much more expensive than my 'Deluxe Queen Room with River View' on the 5th floor. This was a great disappointment. On my month long tour in total 14 four- and five-stars hotels this was the smallest room and also the one for which I paid the most. It was definitely not 23sqm, as it said on the booking website, but more like 18sqm. Also there was no armchair, as depicted, only a chair by the writing desk, which had no reading lamp.

The bed was fine and I had a good sleep, but there was nowhere to put one's clothes. The narrow wardrobe contained a fridge (with minibar), a nespresso machine, a kettle to boil water, a set of tea bags and coffee capsules, cups, glasses, wine glasses, snacks and a big red wine bottle, also an iron and a safe. Two of the clothes hangers were taken by bathrobes, under the other was an ironing board. The drawer by the bed had a bible, the one in the bathroom a hair dryer. At least there were enough plug sockets in the room.

The washbasin in the bathroom was square and tiny, the shower rather weak. Good were the free toiletries by Kudos Ebony. Air Conditioning couldn't be individually regulated. The view was good, as requested and paid for, but the window couldn't and hadn't be opened for a long time, since the windowsill was full of bird droppings.

Per room and 24 hours there are only 100MB of free WiFi and payment by credit card gets a surcharge of 1.2%, something I hadn't seen in all the other hotels I stayed in. Staff at reception was friendly and they excused themselves for letting me wait that long for check in, since they were busy with reservations and booking on the phone. Something for which a hotel with 340 rooms should have a separate person in charge.

Date of stay: November 2019

Dear saronic

Firstly I would like to thank you for the feedback. Sorry to hear that your stay with us was not up to the mark. All rooms do come with free wifi for the entire stay and windows do not open due to safety reasons and also because the building is heritage.
We can assure you that each review is important for us and your feedback has been forwarded to all departments concerned for further training and improvement.
Please feel free to contact us and help us make your next stay better.
Warm regards

This room was great if you just needed a bed and somewhere to sleep, the room was the definition of small. Sounds proofing wasn't great as cleaning rooms started at 8am so you never needed an alarm clock to wake you. No modern upgrades like usb chargers.
