The biggest problem we (a large group staying here to attend a wedding) had was in regard to the lack of hot water! Sorry, but at an upscale hotel, I expect to have hot water when I want to take a shower. Virtually everyone experience this problem during the 3 night we stayed here.
That being said, I hate the trend towards see-through bathrooms. I suppose it's fine when you are staying here by yourself, but even when staying with my husband, I prefer to have a shower that itsn't open to the rest of the room! The glass wall doesn't even have a door to close the shower, which means that cold air from the room is constantly entering the shower enclosure. Coupled with a lack of hot water, this was a huge problem to me. With some of our group where friends were sharing a room, this lack of privacy was a real problem.
The breakfast was fine, we ate lunch here one day and it was ok, nothing special.
The service was very good. It's easy to get anywhere with taxis, which are quite cheap.
