Very central hotel. The rooms are too small and without any comfort for a 5 star hotel. The staff is unfriendly. Very poor breakfast. For a long time there were no servants in the dining room. There is no one in charge of the dining room. The pool has very cold water.

We stayed just for one night this time at this great hotel. We already knew that the spa-area and the restaurant are under renovation, so we were prepared for that. The older staff is very friendly and efficient but the younger staff are still searching for the efficiency. The renovation did not show very much but there were loud noises...

It was cold outside but inside the room was lovely and clean as well as being cosy from the outside temperatures . We booked a room in the old building which was lovely. I...

It is on the cusp of being excellent and just needs to iron out a few wrinkles namely around the breakfast service which has been commented on by other reviewers and perhaps some reworking of the existing lobby space. I stayed in a very comfortable suite with its own sauna which was welcome given the perishing weather. The rooms are...

Needs a better on the ground operation, can be fixed easily. - reception...
