It was actually last minute when I booked this hotel and it turned out perfectly well. This hotel opened 3 months ago (after some renovations) and everything looked beautiful. The rooms are nice, the hallways are decorated with lovely paintings and the breakfast buffet was really very good, and included some sparkling wines. The staff were all friendly and the location is also good.
