Rated 4 out of 5 by BusinessTraveller85 Okay Hotel for business travelers
Slightly negative first impression as my inital room was not cleaned after the last visitor when i arrived on Sunday evening.
However, staff was very friendly and helpful and I was upgraded to a better room.
Very nice fitness facilities (brand new) with a good pool for just relaxing (not soo good for swimming laps as it is curved and not straight).
Breakfast was okay, nothing special and cofee was not very good. It gets very crowded during peak times as the breakfast room is rather small for the amount of rooms in the hotel.
Main issue is that you have to pay for the Internet with 23 Euro per night or 89 Euro for 7 days. Should be included in room price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DonJPJ This hotel needs technical improvement
Two of six elevators were out of order, so it took a long time to get down to breakfast, and even longer to go up to my room again. My key card did not work repeatedly, and because of the overloaded elevators I took the stairs two times from the 10th floor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ms49 RECEPTION
unfriendly and incompetent personnel at the reception. claimed no place for me in the SPG floor and checked in a colleague who is not a SPG member in the SPG floor
no status recognition. I think you should have a look at the service quality at the check in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alexander Avoid it
The Hotel is in major restoration on its top floor: Around the building never ending barricades, very noisy, some wall climbers are there, balconies are VERY filthy so one can't even step out. For the past at least half a year there is no swimming pool or gym or spa but... they simply forget to mention that while you are making your booking. The whole street is half closed because there are several major construction sites around. I would avoid this Hotels for at least another half a year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alexander It is a disaster
Never ending construction! Stayed last year and the pool was closed, this year they have opened the pool but the Hotel still is surrounded by a construction fence and it is almost impossible to get around. The outdoor restaurant is closed for a good reason: it is surrounded by construction fence and entrance is through some ugly passage. Balconies are filthy, some construction workers zooming up and down the building. The whole street is almost closed by nearby and Hotel constructions. It is loud and filthy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ayman Good hotel if youre staying in a clinic
A relatively old hotel, which hosts a clinic on its top floor, and thus as a result the crowd in the hotel are mainly our fellow elder people. At least thats what i have noticed during my stay in the reception.
The hotel accepts dogs inside, which mite be common with some hotels in Europe, however to me is a big no for a hotel.
Have decided to switch to another more luxurious starwood property opposite to this hotel.
The people working there are nice and supportive. I just didnt find the hotel to be to my liking for a number of factors, and chose to stay in another 5 star starwood property instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lente2000 Great Hotel but this time worse room
There was a unpleasant smell in my room. The douche head was broken and the drain was blocked.
I reported the douche issues. The douche head was kind of repaired repared on the first day but they forgot about the drain. It took finaly two days before the drain issue was tackles.
Further I'm satisfied with Sheraton Arabella Hotel. I specially like the gym and the ceasar salad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CYC01 Lovely pool, nice hotel
The lobby felt a bit more like a nightclub than a smart business hotel with the purple low-lighting. The pool area was amazing, and whilst I loved the atmospheric pool lighting and views over the city at night, as a woman there on my own again I felt a little bit vulnerable because it was SO dark and there was just one other guy in there and no supervision... I would also have appreciated breakfast being available earlier and the pool being open from 6am, so that I could take advantage of it before having to leave for my meetings. I also think it's pretty poor that free wifi is not available in the rooms, when I've stayed at much cheaper hotels where it is available. The room was smart and clean and comfortable, but a little small!
