Among the many services that this hotel offers, it is in fact possible to book a prestigious Maserati car with a driver that will drop you anywhere you want in style.

My stay at the luxury establishment allowed me to experience the routine of this establishment: waking up in a comfortable room, getting ready, then off to breakfast, where the house will treat you to your favorite continental breakfast items, as well as something more traditionally British if you are in the mood for something more earthy and substantial. The coffee here definitely deserves an honorable mention, as the bar relies on a traditional Italian coffee maker that packs in a lot of punch and flavor: the perfect espressos!
