                • In central location, quiet place and every member of the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The room was big, drinks in the bar were excellent and concierge was great in getting restaurant reservations. Sascha, the hostess manager, was very charming on my last night.

                  · at times unpredictable service and especially the narrow bathrooms.

                • Great location, perfect hotel and the staff very kind and prepared. Bedroom, bathroom were clean, neat, service and courtesy in the two bars was excellent, breakfast was also very fresh and personal. The concierge's desk was always helpful.

                  The deluxe room i had had a bad view on a courtyard.

                • Perfect location and nice atmosphere. For the price we expected much better, the restaurant just off the lobby was excellent for breakfast / lunch and the staff were very very attentive. Our room was great and the food was exquisite and the service discreet. The concierge was wonderful and facilities were amazing.
