In case you're used to the breakfast buffet that BW properties throughout Europe and elsewhere include in the cost of the room, you might notice "Breakfast buffet" under "Amenities," then "show more" in this Tripadvisor listing. If you're a BW member and actively seek Best Western whenever you travel, you can't be faulted for assuming that breakfast is included in the price here. It isn't.
We were given the last room completed, sharing a wall with the next room to be completed. The hammering felt as if it were happening inside our room, and the workman was gracious to let us know that he was nearly done. He hadn't thought that we were in the room. All the people at the hotel were just as friendly, and are working under very difficult conditions as they renovate the property. Front desk and breakfast room workers are respectful and do everything to make guests feel welcomed.
The room: Outlets about ten centimeters from the floor are black. Most European outlets use two-prong plugs, so getting to the floor and working with adapters into unfamiliar outlets can be quite difficult unless you are Swiss and accustomed to the three-prong outlet, designed three-to-a-location, and black. Black is certainly more stylish than white, but plan to be on the floor and bring a flashlight to see the outlets.
The room temperature control seems adequate: Three fan settings which were working, and an ample temperature range which was not; the room was hot no matter how low we turned the thermostat. We couldn't open the door to the little balcony because the balcony was under construction.
The bathroom designer must have enjoyed creating this bathroom. But I doubt they ever negotiated using it. I can't remember a tub /shower anywhere without a single grab bar. The hand held vertical bar is located in a position that forces water out of the surround and into the bathroom. The tub is very large and comfortable. However, getting into the tub and reaching the taps made us feel lucky to be tall.
More on bathroom design: The round window between the bathing area and the sleeping area is, again, stylish, especially if your travel companion and you don't mind a hint of exposure. But if one of you gets up in the middle of the night, take that flashlight because turning on the bathroom light will light up the sleeping area.
In conclusion, a very notable design project with wonderful, hard-working employees, more suitable for guests who don't care if their room is "easy" to use. less
