After spending nights mainly in low cost hotels while backpacking, I wanted to book a luxury hotel for me and my boyfriend for the New Year. I found a good deal from the Internet for two nights at Shangri-La's Eros -hotel. I was a bit afraid of how the staff would react and treat us, because we looked quite weary... They welcomed us very friendly, and treated us well. The hotel is very fancy, and I can imagine that it has been one of the most luxurious hotels in the world back in the days. Our room was spacious, clean and decorated nicely. The hotel has a good location, but walking around was quite difficult because of the traffic. We mainly used taxis for moving around, but remembered to be very careful with them. You always need to make sure that a taxi has a working meter and it's legal, otherwise you will get into trouble... On the New Year's Eve we decided to stay in our hotel room and order food & wine from the room service. The food was pretty good though the price didn't meet the value. We also tried the hotel's buffet dinner & breakfast, which were definitely worth the money. We enjoyed our stay in the hotel, and I can recommend it especially for couples because of the romantic atmosphere.
