Nice stay
The hotel was beautiful and the staff were so lovely and welcoming. The only draw backs to this hotel was the scaffolding on the building. It was a eyesore and covered our view out of the window. When booking the hotel we were not informed of this and probably wouldn’t have booked it as we look for a good view. Second thing was the bathroom was very basic and had a few black mould patches however the actual room was stunning with very modern decor.

Small and compact Hotel
The hotel is in a very convenient position for the museums and shopping. This is a small hotel and my room was very small, however it did contain all the facilities such as a hairdryer, tea/coffee making. I think that I expected more having stayed at other Melia hotels.
