The Hotel Bristol is part of the Luxury Hotel Collection with SPG. The hotel is located in the Old Town.
I was able to book the room after filing for a successful Best Rate Guarantee, which garnered me an extra 2,000 Starpoints.
Upon entering the hotel, a tasteful lobby with Old World charm greets you. The front desk is located to the left. Check-in was quick, but thorough and within a few minutes I was on my way to the room.
The hallways are elegantly decorated.
I was assigned Room 442, a room with two twin beds.
Upon entering the room, there is a short hallway with the bedroom to the right.
The beds were pushed together, rather than being separate. Great if you are traveling with someone you don’t mind sharing a bed with, otherwise awkward. No matter the case, having the crease between both beds can be uncomfortable. There was a bench at the foot of each bed.
Two bottles of complimentary water were provided, and much appreciated.
To the left of the beds, was a small desk with limited workspace, and two chairs and small table.
The flat screen TV was next to one of the chairs, and was easy to view from the beds.
Underneath the TV, was the mini bar.
The bathroom was somewhat small. There was a single sink with very limited counter space, which is bothersome since I like to have a lot of room. Given that the hotel was built in 1901, I wouldn’t imagine that most of the rooms are very spacious.
There was also a shower/tub combo with the dreaded half glass shield. As usual, the floor got wet after taking a shower.
Elemis products were provided.
There was a toilet and bidet, with additional “counter space” above both but I can’t imagine anybody wanting to utilize that space unless absolutely necessary except for housekeeping as the towels were stored there.
We had a quick overnight at the hotel, but all employees were friendly. The hotel is conveniently located to many shops, restaurants, and sites. If wanting to stay in this area, the Hotel Bristol is an excellent choice.
