Very large, very comfortable, very well located
Excellent hotel in a great location overlooking one of the main squares and near the Old Town and other attractions.
It's quite a large hotel and breakfast can be a bit of a battle if you're there at peak time. If there's no queue for the egg station then jump in quick. The offerings are extensive but nothing out of the ordinary - choice of milks, including soy, yoghurts, lots of pastries and bread, selection of cereals and hot food plus eggs, pancakes, waffles. Some fruit but not a vast selection.
Rooms are large and comfortable, even standard sizes. I found the temperature setting very warm and nothing I could do would bring it down. Although there was no desk in the room, even though there is plenty of room for one.
The bed was also way too soft for me - it's like sleeping on marshmallows. I know Sofitel has a thing to customise your bed but when I turn up late after a long journey am I going to call housekeeping and ask them to make my bed normal.
The bar and lounge is a good place to relax and work during the day if you need to. The brasserie restaurant has good food but is hard work - they've gone all modern with descriptions like Cod / Leek / Corn or Blackberry / Apple / Honey . Umm yeah, a little more description would be helpful - the poor restaurant staff must be sick of explaining everything 100 times a night.
There's a really lovely indoor heated pool downstairs and they offer various treatments plus a sauna. The gym is adequate but nothing special and I think it would feel crowded pretty quickly - couple of treadmills, cross trainers and bikes, only a couple of weight machines and a selection of barbells. There are no free weights or kettle bells.
Overall not bad, good value if you can get a good rate.
