Amazing honeymoon upgrade!
Our honeymoon stay was amazing. We were offered an amazing upgrade at check in to one of the whirlpool terraces! Normally over £15,000 for four nights ( I checked!) and for £800 more we grabbed their offer! The storm hit the last day... but it didn’t dampen our stay! They treated us so well. Breakfast included with our upgrade fee and that alone was worth spending the extra. Room service, staff, reception staff were always professional and nothing was left unnoticed. The hotel lobby and bar were impressive and our terrace room was a perfect retreat. (With an amazing view of the city!) Close to sights, but we were excited to return to our room to continue our luxury stay. I’m sure the other rooms offer exceptional accommodation facilities too, but if offered the upgrade take it!

Totally unsatisfactory
Totally disappointed, Wi-Fi wasn’t free, in a country that even in train you get free Wi-Fi Noise in sharing room, no breakfast included, must European hotels they have breakfast included in the room.
