The Criterion is a great place to stay. I was in a room right next to the highway. It was quiet. The bistro is always nice, and the bar is always welcoming.

8/10 Very good

Love a visit to The Criterion. Hotel decor is great, friendly staff. Cleanliness has dropped a little since pre Covid times. (We have been staying here since 2019). One suggestion to improve eco-friendliness would be to have refillable pump packs of shampoo, conditioner, soap in the shower.

The place is clean and tidy. I can't say or expect spacious place with the price I paid. I did not buy anything yet there is minibar option. Some basic items are provided as usual except tissues so bring your own tissues :)
