It's not every day you find a 17th-century church that is part of a hotel, especially a stylishly contemporary one like this, with white and minimalistic public areas and vibrant lounges and restaurants. The erstwhile church, reached through an underground passage, serves as a conference center. Top-floor rooms provide panoramic views of the city, and the downstairs café has a peaceful, leafy terrace.

We were happy with our stay here, especially since we got a good deal on Priceline. We stayed 2 nights upon arriving, and then our last night before leaving, in which they upgraded us to a minisuite (without us asking), which was nicer than the original room. The location is really good, though a bit hard to find--walking distance from the train station. From the pictures in the website, I expected a really large, luxurious hotel, but while nice,
it certainly wasn't a 5 star (as it's advertised). The free coffee in the morning and chocolate at the desk were real perks.
