This is the first time we have written a review of a hotel for Trip Advisor. Sometimes you read reviews of hotels and wonder if you are staying at the same property. We have just returned from Astoria and cannot understand the negative reviews that this hotel sometimes gets. We had a lovely time from the moment the hotel car met us at the airport to the minute it dropped us off at the airport for departure. The hotel upgraded us to their Studio suites with views of the Cathedral, a welcome gift of chocolates and we were given late check out privileges; what more could you ask? The ballerina pictures in the room and the 'From Russia with Love' picture in the marble bathroom provided a nice quirky twist to the overall ambiance. Breakfast in the Astoria Café was excellent.
We had dinner in the Astoria Café twice; the quality of the food and overall value for money were excellent. If one were to have one small quibble it would be that the service in the restaurant during our second meal was not up to the level of our first meal (which was completely faultless) due to a lack of staff caused by two functions running concurrently. This was just one of those things.
Overall we would not hesitate to return or recommend the hotel to others.
