Hotel in good location

Pros: Good location
Cons: Complete refit and update and for staff to listen and fix when something doesn't work
Location: Good location near to underground short walk to centre
Check in easy and quick didn't like first room we were given sixth floor in the attic hotel staff changed with no problem.this room was very tired looking and the heating didn't work told reception on numourous occasions but didn't get fixed for the complete stay so came home with a cold.the whole hotel very tired looking definitely not a 5 star as advertised 3 at best only 2 narrow lifts and at best only 1worked most of the time.Restaraunt for breakfast very cramped tables too close together breakfast not that great as most things that were supposed to be hot weren't.

Great city break

Hotel experience was great, staff were really helpful and attentive. Nice touch was a birthday cake in the room, without any prompting from my Husband!

We had 3 nights at the hotel, opted for a superior double which was great large room very spacious bathroom, spotlessly clean and I would imagine fairly newly redecorated. The staff were all most helpful and attentive. It is well worth booking B & B as the breakfast is wonderful value bucks fizz, fruits etc, smoked salmon, mackerel, roll mops, every sort of cured meat, hot English style breakfast, omelette station, pancakes, breads, cakes pastry's etc. etc. Friendly bar staff with lovely seating area. Ideally situated for underground services and trams. Opt for a room at the side or back as it is a noisy street mainly due to the trams. We would highly recommend it.

Nice Christmas stay

I had read some negative reviews about this hotel, and I was surprised with them when we got there. The staff were wonderful, and the hotel friendly, comfortable and spacious. I would think that you need to stay for more than a day to appreciate what a good hotel this is. Location superb for getting around.

One snag

Everything great, apart from an over-attentive pianist while having dinner. Plenty of good restaurants around to avoid him in future!

Great for city break

As this seemed great value I ignored the bad reviews and booked a double room. On arrival we were shown to a twin room which had seen better days. I explained it was our ruby wedding anniversary so we would prefer a double room. We went out for supper and returned to find we had been upgraded to a lovely big room with huge double bed. From then on everything was perfect: clean and comfortable accommodation (if a little old-fashioned!) with great service and wonderful breakfast buffet. Tram stops and underground station just 2 mins. away, easy walking into city centre where there is so much to see: palaces and galleries, churches, monuments and gardens as well as beautiful shops. Entrance fees to palaces etc. not cheap, but food and drink more reasonable than expected for capital city.

Awesome 2nd honeymoon

We stayed here in 1987 on our honeymoon and always planned to come back one day. This year was our 25th Anniversary and this was the only place we wanted to come to. The hotel has been updated fantastically in the past 25 years. Very comfortable and stylish with luxury just where you need it. All the staff were exemplary and our mini suite was just beautiful and so very spacious. Our only 2 minor criticisms were the menu in the restaurant was very limited and what happened to the huge picture of Franz Josef in the breakfast room?
