There are SO MANY GREAT things about this hotel, it's going to be hard to refrain from adjectives and stick to facts that will help you.
The title of this review spells out clearly how we feel.
The place is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!
The staff ... Oh my God, the staff! .... If you have ever stayed at a Four Seasons hotel you know and understand their level of service. Well, you would not think possible but Hotels Zara's staff is every bit as good, if not better.
EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE is UNBELIEVABLY professional, courteous, impeccably attired.
Hotel Zara uses their own fleet of taxi's (Mercedes-Benz's). NEVER be afraid to have the front desk get one for you. You will never be taken advantage of.
We were privileged to have met and spoken to the General Manager, Mr. ZOLTAN GEHER. A true professional with a passion for his hotel. He took great pride in telling us that within two months of the hotel's opening in June of 2010, they were and have been at over 91% capacity. In a city with hundreds of fine hotels that, is quite an accomplishment. Thank you Mr. Geher. It was an honor and pleasure to have met you. We hope to see you again. And my wife and I hope you take us up on our offer of you visiting us and staying at our home?
There is a young man at the front desk whose name I must mention, Mr. GABOR NYERGES. What a professional. ALWAYS with a smile and warm greeting. ALWAYS eager to be of assistance. THANK YOU GABOR!!!! We appreciate you very much. And we wish you GREAT SUCCESS. To be truly successful in the Hospitality Industry you must possess, looks, manners, refinement, intelligence, a passion to be of service, impeccable appearance and poise. You, young sir, have them ALL. Please stay in touch with us. We would love to hear how your career is growing as time passes. Again GABOR, THANK YOU!
Now for what you want to know, the hotel:
ROOMS - Beautiful, gorgeous, comfortable, and on and on. Cleanliness - Beyond expectations. We stayed in room #627. Amenities galore!
BREAKFAST - Here comes another adjective, UNBELIEVABLE. Anything you could possibly want. And what a job the staff does. Chafing dishes are always full.
