We had booked our room way in advance, I had asked for a room with a view, which we got - thank you for that. Although the room was smaller than we had hoped, we learned to appreciate the hotel, primarily due to its proximity to everything, excellent housekeeping and because we had a nice bathroom with complimentary toiletries. And last but definitely not least; the rooftop terrace - it's truly enjoyable and I can only imagine how amazing it must be during summertime, when it's nice and warm and the rooftop bar is open....
The breakfast buffet had like a million pastries and muffins, different sorts of bagels and toast and ..Philadelphia cream cheese and jam. And Butter, of course. I sort of missed other kinds of cold cuts, and found it quite strange that there were sooo many cakes to choose from and yet only two kinds of spread?!
Another thing which I found really odd and annoying was the empty fridge in our room. I desperately wanted some water the night upon arrival, but couldn't get any until we went to buy some the next morning. So if you arrive late, make sure you bring your own water ;o)
