Staff and room, both spectacular!
Amazing rooms and more importantly amazing staff. We never had such friendly experience with a hotel staff. Rooms were meticulously designed for comfort, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We did not expect any concierge services but the front desk offered to help us with booking tickets and told us about the best places and restaurants. Thanks for the greatest hospitality ever!

8/10 Very good

We had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. The staff were all very welcoming and the room very comfortable. The only problem we had was we couldn’t work out how to change the room temperature. But in part this was our fault as we didn’t ask how to adjust it.

Excellent hotel in great location
Excellent hotel in a fabulous location. Just on the edge of the Gothic quarter, there were so many places to visit within walking distance. Our room was at the rear of the hotel, but was very quiet and comfortable. Roof terrace is amazing and staff were really friendly and helpful.

Incredible Stay!
My wife and I stayed 4 nights here and had an absolutely incredible stay. I have stayed at hotels three times the price that don't come close to the quality of the staff and luxury of the rooms. When we first arrived, Bea met us at the front desk to check us in, and provided a map of the local gothic district and highlighted all of the must-see landmarks and market streets, many of which are in walking distance of the hotel. Our room was extremely clean and came with a free bottle of water. It was also very spacious, with the bathroom having both a traditional stand-up shower and a bathtub/shower combo. The bed was also one of the comfiest mattresses I've slept on, and they provided several different types of pillows including a feather-stuffed and cervical pillow. The balcony was tiny and too small to relax on, but it did allow us to get some fresh air and peak out at the skyline view while the sun set (see picture). We also received a voucher for a free glass of champagne each, which was very generous of the staff. The cherry on top was the free use of their fitness center, which featured a treadmill, 2 ellipticals, dumbbells, and a full size weight rack with 45lb men's bar and bench. I was able to squat, deadlift, and bench press up to 155 pounds. I can't tell you how rare it is to find a weight rack in a hotel gym! Only nitpick was that the nightclub Bonbon across the street was right under our window, which can get noisy. Overall, we loved our stay and will be back!
