Our favourite rooms
We hate to make it personal when it comes to Hollywood, but, as far as Astoria7 is concerned, it’s got to be Alfred. The Alfred Hitchcock suite on the top floor has its own ceiling-stowed projector and screen, as well as a separate lounge, large balcony and a cinema library. For lone rangers, some of the single rooms on the ninth floor have almost-double beds and their own balcony.
Paparazzi-evading sunglasses – and Mrs Smith should channel Audrey or Grace with Tiffany jewels and satin headscarves.
Two-night minimum stay required at Easter, 8–15 August and during the city’s film festival (September). Smoking is not allowed in the hotel.
Welcome; cots available for free, extra beds for €40. The hotel has connecting family rooms with the same entrance hall. A nanny can be drafted in (with a month’s notice) to babysit for €20 an hour.
