The atmosphere (historic building) incl. the courtyard // the location (city center but still quiet - if room faces courtyard!) // accessibility (e.g. from St Pieters RR station) using public transport

The overall high standard of this deluxe hotel.

While my room was facing the inner court (as requested) there was considerable noise from a catering event held there on the second evening... Waiting time on check-in could be reduced by having a second person on duty during the evening ´´rush hour´´.

Good location, walking distance to main attractions. Interesting mix of modern design and old palace style

No remarks that construction is not yet completed. Wellness not available (not yet finished, but lots of paperwork for marketing !!! Loud traffic, especially in the ground floor rooms on the road side.
