    Superb hotel
    Amazing hotel with nice restaurants, excellent food and superb rooms. Quiet and with a nice view from the top floors. Service was overall good, but sometimes less than desirable regarding the attention level and friendliness. Rarely have I experienced such difference between very friendly and forthcoming staff and the few that was not up to the job.
