Exclusive but friendly. I haf a fantastic duplex suite with glass stairs to the bedroom from the living area. Two bathrooms is impressive. Great location, right in the centre. Faultless as you would expect. A very memorable stay. Fourth floor rooms have limited view to the front.

This place is a rare gem in terms of service. ALL of the staff were very kind, friendly and helpful. In particular, the concierge, Goncalo, was truly exceptional. In addition, the room was very nicely appointed, quiet and the hotel location ideal. I'm so glad we selected this hotel for our 3-night stay! :)
