This was all one could ask for in a hotel in Europe. The location was perfect - convenient to everything but not in a congested or noisy area. The room - two double beds - was clean, large, and comfortable. Temperature in the room with a/c was perfect. Loved the huge walk-in closet with a safe; the bathroom was unbelievable for any hotel, but especially one in Europe. Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was served in a large, light, comfortable area and the array of food choices was fantastic. Servers were friendly and helpful. Overall, one of the most comfortable hotel stays we've ever had in Europe. Highly recommended.
