I stayed with my family over new years. You feel taken back in a tasteful way into the late colonial 19th century, yet without missing the modern comforts of the 21st century.
The rooms are generous and spacious. The view and the facilities such as the pool are amazing. The location is very convenient,
The staff is well trained, and takes individual care of guests. When my senior father got lost, it seemed like the whole hotel was on high alert and looking for him. When we were late to a dinner appointment and no taxi could be found, the concierge took the house Mercedes and drove us.
Without hesitation I would highly recommend this hotel, as it is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in.
Just try to stay away from rooms near the pedestrian crossing, as it makes a loud noise when the light turns green.
