Stylish Interior Design

The interiors are the brainchild of renowned interior designer Claudio Carbone. Despite the hotel’s positioning as a business hotel it features countless stylish design details. The lobby is colorful enough yet the materials and colors blend nicely and pleasantly.

    • Yes, we felt very comfortable and at home despite the fact that the hotel is positioned as a ‘business hotel’.

      The team is very friendly and the GM is acting cautiously towards the full fledged gala opening.

      The chef’s menu selection is spectacular, foodies will love the restaurant ;-)
