We stayed there in early October and have to agree with the rave reviews from other guests regarding the rooms and staff. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We were on the corner but noise was not an issue. The staff were very helpful and I would definitely recommend using the hotel's pickup and drop off service for trains and the airport. (Not only does it save a lot of hassle, but Milan the driver is great, with the added bonus that he takes your bags to your room, saving you lugging your suitcases up the stairs!)
Two points: If you like a hotel that has lounges, patios or other common areas available to guests you should know that this hotel has none. What you are getting is a GREAT room and a fabulously convenient location for the tourist sights, restaurants etc.
Secondly, the next door restaurant where hotel guests are given vouchers for breakfast is okay, a bit cramped with music blaring all the time but my major complaint is that there was little, and on some days no fruit.
Would I go back? ABSOLUTELY
