4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff and check-in process were great. I was even given an upgrade without asking. The room was much larger than I expected, especially by European standards. The room was relatively clean. The curtains smelled pretty dirty. I only knew that because I had to wrestle with them to try to get the black out curtains to full close (I was unsuccessful). Also, one more we had no power which was unfortunate. The power outage only impacted my corridor. The location was great. I'd stay again.
