“Beautiful room, balcony and views”
Reviewed 10 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 6 nights. At check-in they advised we'd been upgraded from our junior suite to an Exec suite, it was beautiful, Gorgeous decor and lovely sunny balcony to sit and have coffee in the morning. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice, wine and champers available, if that's what you fancy with breakfast! Good location for a walk along the promenade, for restaurants and casino. We always went out for dinner so cant comment on hotel food. Would definitely stay again!

We booked the Pullman Skipper because it's located right at the beach, notwithstanding that in the end it is a little further from downtown as we hoped.
The rooftop pool with amazing view is great. But why is it not heated in pre-season? Nobody was using it, the water was simply too cold, even with 23*C outside air temp. in May.
Other facilities such as the Spa remain unused due to the high surcharge. It is unacceptable that a 5*hotel charges 25,- EUR for the Sauna use. The gym is a desaster, smallest one I have ever seen in a 5star.
Rooms were pretty small, noisy and contained a terrible cleaning smell.
Rooftop pool at the top was closed one day because auf private event, late checkout was denied.

All in all, in this price range, by all means, book sth different, e.g. the W or the Mandarin Oriental. You will get a lot more value for money.

I have stayed at the Pullman Skipper twice. The rooms, hotel and pool area are lovely and modern and clean. We had great cocktails and pool snacks however the staff did have a surly edge and did not go out of their way to help us on a couple of occasions. This is in a great location to walk along the olympic marina and at night the area feels safe and vibrant. You can also walk to the night clubs on the sea front which is a massive bonus.
