I'm not sure how this place can be so highly rated. Here is how our experience went. We arrived at the hotel. No one greeted us outside so we brought our own bags in. We were suppose to have a king room and one with two twins. We had confirmed reservations but the lady at the desk kept telling us...

Dear Guest, We were all greatly upset to read the review you posted on Trip Advisor. Let us begin by stating that two Superior King bedrooms had been booked for you by your travel agent. In order to have upgraded to a Deluxe Twin bedroom a nightly supplement of €40 would apply. However as a gesture, the front desk team...

I checked back in to The G (my third stay at this hotel), after checking out of Park House Hotel; if service is how you define a hotel, then Park House is one of the world's best hotels and The G, one of the worst! I emailed the hotel at around 10am to ask if my suite was ready, the...

From the outside this hotel is rather underwhelming, but when you go in it is very different!

Large rooms, especially by European standards. Very modern & great decor! Easy to miss when driving, as it's adjacent to a small shopping strip and not well publicized. A bit of a walk to the main shopping area, but only a 5-10e taxi ride & they are on the scene immediately when called up by the concierge. Highly recommend the...
