We stayed here for one night, booked by employers, & having read what others have said before us we wondered what we would find......The hotel looks quite daunting from the outside - a massive construction of dark iron girders?! Once inside though the atmosphere is relaxed & spacious. The staff were all very helpful & friendly, & not at all put out by our lack of German! Our room was very pleasant - clean, quiet & plenty of space. Bathroom looked great, but no curtain or screen for the shower meant we were paddling to use the loo even the next morning! No tea & coffee facilities was a disappointment in a hotel of this class, but the choccies left on our pillows were totally yummy & there is free internet (we were offered the necessary cable when we checked in). Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, & we enjoyed our wait in the bar area between checking out & the arrival of our taxi to the airport. We did go up to the bar on the 20th floor - no queue, but even on a Thursday night it was heaving so we took a quick look at the view & left again!
