All right, I have to admit, diamond has its privileges, and I was treated to a double upgrade to a room that had more space than I and three friends could have used: kind of strange rattling around in it. Overall: it's in that grand hotel category that I don't care for, with the staff somewhere between deferential and obsequious (you might like this, I don't particularly). Lobby luxurious and rather beautiful. The room was pretty glorious for E120 a night - an extremely nice big comfy bed and an extremely nice big bathroom with separate bath and shower. Location: about 1/4 mile south of Louise/Louiza station, very convenient to everything. The neighborhood was quiet but punctuated through the night by sirens (I wonder if there's a hospital nearby). Breakfast - quite good, with a large number of choices. The scrambled eggs were bizarre curds in whey; I am told that if one has the full breakfast included in one's rate, one can have eggs made to order for no additional fee.
