The place is really lovely and the atmosphere is very cool. Young and kind staff at the reception - though I wouldn't call them "friendly". Rooms are large and minimal-style furnished (though I must admit I didn't like the shelves and racks to substitute for a proper cupboard). Breakfast is abundant and excellent with two buffets - one sweet, one salted - and served in a lovely little theatre with outstanding décor.
I was a bit surprised to find worn-out sheets and towels (one of them even ripped) and the complimentary toiletries were also scanty.
Free wi-fi and satellite TV; the mini-refrigerator in the room is very nice to look at but so noisy that I had to switch it off during the night.
One thing I didn't like is that when I arrived, though the room had already been paid for by my company, the receptionist asked me my credit card as a "guarantee" for the minibar drinks and snacks. Well, what I think is that a 4-stars luxury hotel should not only avoid such suspicious attitude, but also offer at least water free of charge to its customers, and take the risk that somebody who can afford to stay in a ***L hotel might steal something from the minibar a coke or a beer or a chocolate from the minibar instead of displaying such unpleasant distrustfulness.
