What can we tell from this?

Our analysis shows some important topics that guests talk about. The topic clean seems to have a negative impact on the grade when it is mentioned together with bathrooms and bedrooms. Even though the negative impact is quite small, it is important for the hotel to improve every aspect to stay competitive among guests. 

It appears that the hotel offers Hermès bath products, which seems to be a positive driver for the grade. The hotel is also located close to Hermès’ main boutique, which can explain why several reviewers talk about this topic. 

Our analysis also shows that several guests talk about the location. We found out that the hotel is located on the same street as the American Embassy. Some guests mentioned that they felt very safe surrounded by police, while others pointed out that it was quite difficult to get to the hotel by car. However, it might be good to inform guests about this in advance.
