The Renaissance is a striking and elegant, luxury hotel that has a fabulously decorated restaurant and bar area including an outside terrace area on street level. This area has a great vibe and on various occasions, I enjoyed breakfast, coffee, drinks and dinner here. It allows you to enjoy the sunshine and see the passing parade and attracts an interesting local crowd as well as guests.
My room on the sixth level was charming and extremely comfortable. It was on the small side but was so well-designed and appointed, it seemed spacious and had a wonderful window that you can open in a number of ways and look out onto the neighbouring buildings. You can see the two views in my photos.My bed was super cosy and no noise at all and I had an excellent night's sleep for the duration of my stay.
The downside is that this hotel isn't located on the lake or the Old Town. It's about a 10 minute walk away. However, it's situated in a wide and interesting street opposite the Rosengart Art Gallery which has a permanent collection of Picasso and other famous artists' work. I enjoyed a wonderful morning immersing in the art.
The staff were friendly and helpful and I'd recommend staying here.More
