    Superb

    The room was great, the view of the garden was lovely.

    There was a private party in the garden on the only night when I was there, so I didn't get to use it at all. The next day there was a clean up operation in full swing, so I didn't get to use it again. I would have liked to make use of it since I was staying at the hotel. Also, I was massively overcharged on my bar bill and this was only found out at my request, when I asked to check the bar bill. The barman was lovely, but how it was possible to charge for something like 77 tomato juices (when my friends had 2) I don't know.

    the room size is good, though it was impossible to switch off the air conditioning whick kept me awake all night

    The restaurant closes too early both at Lunch and Dinner . I was forced to have some food at the Bar instead; however, there was no one to take the food order for at least the first 20 minutes I was there. Overall the service was poor and to make things worse there was a hair in my burger. Not happy at all your hotel offers availability only for 2 nights minumum stay which is a bit unfair towards those who would like to stay there just for a night .

    See Booked.net for my review

    The restaurant, where the wedding reception was held, was extremely noisy - to the point of being painful! Hard walls, floor and table tops meant that noise was bounced off all the surfaces and amplified. It was impossible to have a conversation with people I had not seen since the last family wedding. When the music started people fled!

    Very clean and decor stunning

    We Would have preferred a room On a lower floor as there was no view On the 5th. bathroom small and you had to get in The bath to get at The plug

    Superb

    The posh room I stayed was faced to the garden and could enjoy green trees, sunshine, and sophisticated minimalistic interiors.

    Need to ask for a view from a window, if not you will be disappointed with its residencial wall view, they will charge for garden side window view but worth to pay.

    It is a clean Zen like design, but still functional and human.

    It still looks very good, but has seen its better days and could need a facelift ...

    The position is fairly good; the overall structure of the hotel is good; nice to see the zen garden (even if the grass is ..fake) if you have the chance to overlook it from your room; my room was quite a large room, plenty of ligth and sun at dawn.

    My first room at the 5th floor had a wall in front at all the windows...unbelievable, worst than in a prison!..I Managed to change it and then the room was wery good, even if the furniture need a refresh. possibly the ratio quality/cost is not a good one
