눉The overall décor is dark, grim, oppressive and uncomfortable. The grey/black corridors have low ceilings. None of the chairs are really comfortable to sit in.
The room itself is very dark when you walk into it. Dark blue/brown/grey carpet and curtains. Dark wardrobes, desk and bedside tables. The curtains were closed, despite the fact that there was still bright daylight outside. When I threw open the curtains to let in the light, I was confronted with a view of a large abandoned window box with nothing but a weed growing in it! The three unusual pull-out wardrobes are heavy and difficult to access because you can only use one side of each at a time, and the lighting is poor, so it is difficult to see the colours of items stored in them.
The bath is highly stylised and looks inviting, but is uncomfortable. The faucet is in the middle, so two people can sit in the bath facing each other, but it's not as generous as it at first appears, and the harshly angled ends do not encourage relaxation.
The gym is awful. Dark, low-ceilinged and very small, with five machines, one of which was out of order.
The breakfast offered a lot of choice, but the items we tasted were mediocre. (Scrambled eggs from powder, grey sausage and bacon, cheap smoked salmon, breads, coffee from a dispenser). Definitely not worth 18 Euros a head!
눇At first, the trendy, stylised design with an emphasis on different, unusual chairs in plastic or velvet, mostly themed around roses, seemed interesting.
The room and bathroom were large and the bed comfortable. The glass wall of the bathroom and the high quality bathroom fittings offer an initial sense of luxury. There is a separate private toilet with its own door.
Service at the front desk was fast, friendly and knowledgeable.
The breakfast area is bright and spacious, which is a relief after experiencing the rest of the décor!
