We arrived quite early in the morning, way before check-in time. After flying through the night we just wanted to rest. Luckily for us, Pius was assisting us at the front desk. He took care of us right away, giving us options as the room we booked was understandably not yet ready. He went above and beyond with each aspect of our arrival. In addition, our concierge/bellman was at the same level. The first impression of both the city and this unique hotel were so positive.
