Staff was correct and helpful, but not memorable. The hotel is very vertical. Tight corridors, tight rooms, with a ceiling height we don't see much of these days. My room was smaller than average, and especially the bathroom (no tub) was small compared to modern facilities. One of the lights were out in the bathroom upon my arrival. I asked front desk for a change, but nothing happened until the next day despite assurances that it would be delt with "right away". A large crystal chandelier is usually not possible outside the lobby, but here it hangs in all its glory. The atmoshpere is that of an old well off relative if you know what I mean. Everything is high quality, just olden times high quality, but the TV is flat, and wide. Bed is soft and comfortable. The adjacent office building is very close so during office hours you feel the urge to draw the curtains. The central location also means there will be noise during the late and early hours. Earplugs are offered though. The breakfast is ample and sufficient with the high quality you would expect from a hotel this price range. The jazzbar and dining area are really cosy. As always I welcome a stack of TRAYS as the first station on any buffet to not have to take three turns before I can start digging in. I would choose this hotel again if I had to stay in the area and the budget wasn't tight, but part of me thinks that the price tag is slightly high. less
