    We were told breakfast was included. We went downstairs (before 10 am) and asked for breakfast and they told us rudely they were out of breakfast. Then we saw the receptionist eating breakfast pastries.

    The room maintenance was poor. It clearly needs some refurbishment, like paiting the dirty walls and deeply cleaning or exchange of the floor and bathroom tiles.

    The location was very good, as well as the wifi in the rom, and the size of the room, specially to stay with children. The staff is attentive too.

    Its clearly an apart hotel and not a hotel - could not understand the 4 stars. The cleaning service in a week was once for the whole week... thats impossible to understand, given that if you book only one day, it would clearly be cleaned... There is no room service even for basic room service (say a coffee).

    Location is fantastic and staff is friendly and helpful. Great design, although in desperate need of some up keeping. Price was moderate though and rooms are comfortable.

    Some furniture aren't adequate for kid's, one of my children hit his face and damage it, he needed medical intervention with plastic medic. Another issue was the bed for my children, is a leather sofa and made them sweet a lot during the night, so they got sick. The older one sleep with the mother, so I came to sleep in the sofa and discovered the situation.

    The room is excellent to stay and have a nice sleep... The bathroom is comfortable, the reception guys are friendly. In my case that I have small children, a park is crossing the street, in 50 meters is a small 24 hours shopping magazine and metro is at 3 block's main bus are in the surrounding. So the hotel is in a good geographic position.

    Position and 'design' delighted
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Studio
    • Stayed 1 night

    The art in the foyer was 'tacky' (and 'mildly pornographic' also applied to four pieces.) What was obviously a lap-pool is now a water feature. We are used to having cooking facilities, and missed even rudimentary cooking equipment for the microwave.

    The included breakfast is a real plus. The area feels safe, there are good restaurants and cafes nearby, and small/medium supermarkets within a block. The subway is ~3 blocks; the city is an achievable walk with interesting sights. Even the major cultural areas can be got to by walking. The 'design' in the name carries through a well appointed room/suite.
