Excellent stay with confort.
Hotel is excellent, I noted some small maintenance problems at my floor, the 8th floor. The room service was very fast and efficient. The bar and restaurant service excellent. Concierge very helpful and professional. At the reception, check in and check out was fast and professional nevertheless the personnel could use some smiles. Breakfast very well organised with lots of personnel ready to help.
