    The design is modern and airy - rooms are well equipped and carefully thought out and planned. Exceptional fitness facilities. Magnificent dining in the 9th floor restaurant - certainly one of the best panoramic views in the city with spectaculat lighting effects.

    • Dear Sir / Madam,

      Booking was smooth and visa support prompt. When I had a question or requested additional service (airport transfer) the online service was friendly and prompt.

      Hotel was fine, slightly better than expected and again, everything went very smootly, allowing us to dedicate our full attention to the city we were visiting.

      Will recommend your services and hope to make use of them again.

      Best wishes,
