Great location, easily accessible walking. The property is beautiful, extremely well designed and decorated. The common areas were excellent. Food was fantastic, the breakfast deal was the best.

Good Hotel if not in winter!
This is a nice hotel, clean and quite comfortable, unfortunately it also has very cold rooms! The rooms have no heating and no optional heaters are available, which in winter and if you end up in the top floor as we did, its warmer to be in the hallway then inside the rooms. When I asked about it, I was told that there is floor heating, but that it doesn't really work, and they do not provide portable heaters, so we we're basically stuck with a cold room. My partner already had a cold, and just got worse in this condition. There should be more information when booking if the hotel has any heating in the rooms, as in winter its very cold and not a pleasant stay at all, unless you plan not being in your room at all.
