I didn't know this hotel existed until I found it on Trip Advisor. I booked it based on the outstanding reviews it had and the fact that I love books and thought the concept was unique. Trip advisor is spot on with this one, it is high quality and it surpassed my high expectations. The staff was very welcoming when we arrived. We enjoyed the wine and cheese reception which offered a generous variety of nuts, fruits, cheeses and crackers. The room where this is held is open 24 hours. We returned later after dinner to relax with a cup of hot tea before bed. Upon returning to our room, we found lovely jazz music playing and our bed turned down with some chocolates. The breakfast offered a good selection with lots of cut up fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs. It had more variety than the standard continental fare. I loved having a place to go to in the hotel other than our room that provided us with much comfort with food, drinks and plenty to read. I hIghly recommend!
