This beautiful hotel is a gem that needs some polishing and some resetting..
Years ago, finding this place is wonderful feeling as one does not have to go through an ugly mall. Maybe, this is part of progress that could not be avoided.
The lobby and entrance looks old but still grand. Reception quiet friendly and accommodating. The Superior room given to us at the ground floor is okay with a beautiful garden view though it can be observed that furniture and carpet have seen better days so that it also smelled musty.. would have loved to stay there but since they were repainting the room just beside, my sister who is asthmatic could not stand the strong smell of paint so we requested to be transferred. The gave us a room on the second floor whose window opens to a roof and wires and aircons which was a big disappointment. Same old musty smell. Hot water takes a long time coming. Bathroom is quiet spacious but needs to be upgraded.
Breakfast choices is so limited but not of a breakfast eater, it was okay.. Service is a bit selective but okay.
This is a beautiful hotel and it can be ten times better with an upgrade and facelift.
