    The hotel is near perfect. The staff are excellent, the rooms are amazing and the gym is a complete and proper gym.

    The wifi is not free and costs a staggering €3.50 an hour! The location is a bit out of the way.

    Absolutely first class all the way, from the shoe polisher near the elevators, to the awesome beds to the tv embedded in the bathroom mirror to the swanky view from the lounge on the top floor. If five star hotels are outside your budget in the us or in Western Europe, and you want to splurge a bit, this is a great option.
