First the basics: The location is good, being close to the centre of the old city but in a quiet side street. We stayed 3 nights and it cost 340 euros which is excellent value for such a good Hotel.
These days you expect five star hotels to consist of comfortable rooms with the offer of a quality breakfast. You also expect a business centre for the use of guests and a reliable WiFi to be available. You expect a boutique five star hotel to offer a touch of style and elegance to the above, dressing gowns/slippers etc... So what makes this hotel special?
They offer all of the above and free of charge, they also add to this a free mini bar which is a nice touch. They have exceptionally conscientious staff from the chambermaid, who was extremely helpful when we first arrived, to the front of house staff. They have Bar and Restaurant staff who seem to find time for everyone. It is a consistent attitude throughout the Hotel, which just makes you feel very comfortable, and able to ask for anything and know that you will get a friendly response.
I would also like to add a little bit about the Spa:
We arrived very early in the morning and so I was sure that our room would not be ready and I thought it might be a nice idea to use the Spa as a way of relaxing prior to our rooms being ready. I had read the web site prior to travelling and knew that the Spa consisted of a Jacuzzi, a Sauna and a Sun Bed. The description implied that the Spa was quite small as it was limited to six people and you had to book it as an individual group in two hour slots. The booking is 70 euro before 2pm and 100 euros after that. When you book it you get exclusive use of the Spa. It is not that small, there is plenty of room for 6 and there is also a sun terrace. This is a touch of luxury and elegance that I have not seen in any other hotel, and I would suggest that you should find the time to indulge if you can. The web-site does not do it justice, I should mention the huge plate of fruit and the mini bar as well. They also throw in an exercise machine for good measure but make no mistake this is about relaxing.
They even managed to have our room ready as we checked in a.
