I don't easily give 5 stars to hotels or restaurants. Telegraaf is perhaps my favorite hotel in the world and I am a constantly returning customer. The service in reception has always been exceptional - friendly, helpful and efficient yet subtle. Cosmopolitans in the lobby bar are the best. Rooms are beautiful, I prefer superior rooms with wooden floors. Bathrooms are spacious and pretty. The bathrooms are lightly scented which I love. The scent is quite subtle and not overpowering altough I'm (slightly) asthmatic. The scent comes from a decorational stick-in-aromatic oil (I think) so it could be easily removed.
Restaurant Tsaichovsky is in a beautiful hall with elegant atmosphere. Separated by a wall from the dining hall is the beautiful little spa with its small swimming pool and a hot tub. Even though the are adjacent, no heat, moisture or disturbing noices reach the restaurant. Breakfast is very good with satisfying selection on buffet and alacarte for eggs, pancakes and porridge. And sparkling wine.
If I have to think of improvements, the breakfast staff could be a bit more attentive. Some times you need to holler for a coffee refill, but not loud or for long. :) Also if they had a small gym it'd be close to perfection.
