This hotel was the highlight of our trip. Its like a sensory overload. Its all about fabrics, texture and patterns every where you turn! You get an old fashion key to your room on a cute tassel, no plastic room keys here! The large chandelier on chandelier coming down from the roof is stunning as is the cute monkey and hot air balloon wall paper going all the way up the stairs (yes there are lifts too).
My room was made for me, black and white wall fabric that was padded, chrome and glass and little baby wigs on the walls (its cute trust me). I had a view looking out the front and window that opened so I could hear the fountain out the front. Nice big bathroom, double sink and shower/bath and heaps of storage!
My parents room was red tartan and leopard print, it was a corner room that had a view of the front fountain. The bathroom was huge with a stand alone claw foot tub. Heaps of storage again.
Hot tip get in early for the bar down stairs for a drink, lots of people come here for a drink after work and for meetings during the day so you might find yourself with nowhere to sit in the bar come old fashion library. Summer time must be great as there are fake hot air balloons that you can sit in.
Dinner in the hotel is very fancy and very expensive a must try one night. Breakfast on the other hand was so so. The basket of pastries you get on the table is endless and what I mean by that is you have 3 and a ladt comes and takes away the basket and replaces it with a new one, never mid that there was still half a dozen goodies left. The hot breakfast want to my liking the scrambled eggs looked a little grey for me.
Its just a short walk to the metro and once you master that you can go anywhere!
Over all this hotel is an amazing hotel if you are lucky enough to stay here!!!!
