I had 40 hours in Honkers, I had a desire to make it easy and filled to the brim with luxury so it had to be an Asian hotel chain and it was probably always going to be The Landmark.
I was picked up at the aircraft, taken through passport control and customs, driven perfectly and whisked to my room for check in. It's a swift, faultless operation with lovely touches like clear introductions at each handover and great presentation whilst understanding that a guest may not be feeling the best after a long and delayed flight.
The room was perfect and large, as was the bathroom, shower, bath, basins etc etc. all well appointed. Nice mini bar too.
Bed was fantastic, food in hotel and room service was of a very high standard indeed. Delicious, well presented and good portions.
It's central alright but still easy to get anywhere and away from the malls to the privately owned restaurants and bars.
What let it down? One thing only, and that was a refusal of late check out even though I paid half a day rate for a check out up to 6pm. They refused to move it to 8pm even though the room was free after I vacated it. It would have showed some real class, and not left me feeling they were actually cheap and inflexible if they had accommodated this small request.
A fantastic hotel, but not a classy one ... chasing the extra dollar may pay their bills, but they should be careful as it demonstrates they lack a real understanding of what makes a 5 star hotel.
