                      Perfect bed and location, view on river, quiet and still at a perfect spot in the center

                      Old interactive tv system, no high definition tv, tv in a bad angle towards bed

                      I like the location where the hotel is situated, its very convenient, the staffs are responsive, friendly an curteous. When we checked out, I like the fact that we could grab a cup of coffee on the go. The bathroom floor is heated up, that's awesome.

                      The room is clean but a little too simple and under equipped for a 5 star in such a luxurias location. The service could be improved to povide an extra bottleof water when needed instead of just 1 bottle a day answer, aferall how much does a bottle of water cost. We also had trouble with tv (no sound) to start with. Water pressure in bathroom is quite low.

                      We could sleep quietly in wonderful beds with soft bedding between the opening of the meeting in the evening and the continuation next day.

                      As good as any hotel I've ever stayed in--which includes a lot of luxury hotels.

                      The hotel is beautiful and placed centrally in the city so, it is easy to go out and explore restaurants and shopping. If you are a runner, you can run along magnificent path along river. Staff is friendly and helpful and the room was really comfortable with a beautiful room facing river and hills. We thought the Double deluxe was actually nicer than the junior suite...in case

                      Very expensive. No fixed shower head - had a hand held shower.

                      Location is central & walking distance to everything. Don't bother eating anywhere else as view & menu surpass. 15-20 sfr taxi from train, but tram is very near & cheap.
