Great Location, but not enough value for money,
Posted Oct 10, 2016 on Hotels
The Location for this hotel could not be any better! It's literally in front of the Palace about 100m from the entrance!
The building itself (as I understand) once was part of the palace complex.
That being said you can imagine the building is impressive, as is the modern lobby and restaurant/breakfast area. Breakfast is great and although they said only until eleven, they were still refilling the buffet far past eleven.
The Rooms are spacious but, and this is where it goes wrong, they feel outdated and not worthy of the rest of the hotel. I expect a modern 4-star hotel to have a decent shower not a shower in a bathtub with water pressure resembling a Hobbit with a prostate problem...
There was a separate toilet, which in itself is a plus, but it sounded like it was about to colapse every time me or my much skinnier wife sat down. Also it would help if they just put something on the walls in there, just the same wallpaper as the rest of the room would be a whole lot better than just poorly painted white walls, ceiling and floor.
The contents of the minibar was complimentary, but actually that just meant 2 bottles of water and an orange juice.
There was a thee maker in the room with very nice thee, but again I expect mugs in a 4-star hotel, not way to small paper cups.
All in all I didn't feel we got enough value for money, they are on the right track, but need to bring it home with some small but important improvements.
