The window didn't seal properly, the mattress was uncomfortable and the standard comparable...

Stayed here for one night. Very large comfy room with enormous bed. However, not the best nights sleep as quite a lot of noise outside. Breakfast ok but rather short of space at the tables. Staff also ok. All in all, not a very special experience and rather expensive.
