Let me begin by stating the hotel is perfectly located, the service was good, and the beds were super comfortable. However, the rooms are incredibly small for more than one person and the bathrooms are smaller than a closet. Specifically, Room 408, where a colleague had stayed, has an extra wall in the bathroom so there's no way to dry and style your hair. I think the bathroom in a cruise ship stateroom is larger! Some rooms near the elevators are larger but the majority are the same small size.
We also ate and had drinks at the restaurant. The meals were tasty and the desserts were fantastic but it was extremely expensive... more expensive then it was worth. I also used the fitness facilities which were small but sufficient.
I think the decision to stay at this hotel would rely on what was more important: close proximity to the trains and restaurants versus the comfort of a small room and even smaller bathroom.
