            Hotel location in chic city centre!

            Being an old customer of the hotel for the last few years, I have seen it deteriorating, which is very unfortunate for clients who wish to stay loyal but most probably won'T. Breakfast not as good as it used to be- before selection was maybe less but everything was fresh/high quality. Also, our room was rather run down, there were patches on bathroom wall- they had obviously moved the fittings to different positions but had not bothered to paint it. Whenever we had a shower, the bathroom was flooded and we had to stand in an overflowing shower tub. We immediately informed the reception that the drainage was blocked but only sent cleaner to mob the water but no technician was available to fix it-we were there for 2 nights but no action

            Room was dark because at the back.

            Wonderful location, convenient but private.

          • Single
            9.2

            The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the center of the city with many shops, restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. The breakfast was good. Not a huge variety but more than sufficient for a good start of the day.

            I had booked a superior room which was adequate in size, but not huge.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            We liked the location of Periscope and the fact that it was a very clean hotel. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. The food during dinner was amazing thanks to Chef Paskias!

            The only thing that we considered was negative was the insufficient variety during breakfast. We expected a bit more for breakfast.
