In general: Breakfast was very nice and beautiful. The service and the breakfast hall itself is great and luxury, the variety of food is great too, there was also a la carte menu.
In general: I loved the room, it was just amazing, very big and modern. Since we had two rooms, we liked that we had the entire one side of the building, we could close the corridor door and we could connect the two rooms together, so that was really great. The only bad thing about the room was that it smelled heavily, the entire one room was full of cigarette smell and it was just DISGUSTING, so please keep in mind, if you don´t want to live in cigarette smell, don´t ask for the 7th floor, it is for smokers only. We did not change the room, because they couldn´t give us two rooms in another floor, that were exactly like ours. I did like that they gave us complimentary WiFi for that.
