This is a beautiful old-style hotel with touches of art deco. The lobby and restaurant areas were nicely renovated and shiny... but the room dissapointed me.
Sure, it has a spirit and style which many other big hotels lack. But it also felt inevitably old, something I wouldn't have minded were it not for the fact that it ruined the sleep quality. The biggest problem was the old air conditioning - even when put on a minimum setting, it felt like a gale was blowing in the room, so we had to turn it off, hence it was a bit stuffy and hot. There was also a strange electrical buzzing sound throughout the night, which got so annoying in the quietness of the night that I had to use earplugs. So for me, the beauty of the hotel did not compensate for the lack of comfort. However, other people in our group found the experience better and appreciated the design a lot.
The best part was the food - when we saw the buffet dinner selection, we did not know where to turn first, and ended up running around in joy - the selection is huge, and the food is tasty; the same goes for breakfast. Lots of Western food choices for those with withdrawal syndromes, but also plenty of local dishes, although most contained meat. I am far from being vegetarian, but I really missed purely vegetable dishes.
If the hotel renovated the rooms a bit, starting with the air conditioning, this could be a truly wonderful place.
