Positive Reviews

A trip back in time.

Guests were enchanted by the nostalgic flourishes in this ultra-modern, sophisticated hotel which overlooks some of the city’s most historic sites and attractions and is located just off the main market square. Guests also appreciated the luxurious settings which allowed them to relax after a long day of sightseeing or business.

The pools are a must-visit experience.

Guests were charmed by the oddly gothic but super modern subterranean pools set under the arches of the hotel’s “dungeon” basement.

Delicious food.

Every meal was praised here, starting with breakfast which is not, to quote one guest “your average fry up.” This is old world, sophisticated Europe with a highly modern twist, and diners at the hotel, for whatever meal, were pleased with the quality of the food, and the superb service of the staff.

Negative Reviews

No coffee maker in the rooms.

Some guests were a little surprised to find that the hotel does not provide a tea and coffee service in the room.

The sky bar is sometimes shut.

More than a few guests complained that they could not visit the rooftop terrace bar as it was closed when they were there. It is shut for private parties and special events as well as holidays.

Not quite five star.

Some guests felt that their bathrooms could be cleaner and a few reported finding black mould on the tiling. Other guests complained that the advertised air conditioning is actually a fan system and that the rooms can be insufferably hot in the summer. Many guests complained about the spotty Wi-Fi quality throughout the facility.
