I was in town for the week on business. Work put me up in a very ordinary hotel, so I decided to stay at Cachet on my last night. The property is very easy to find and is boutique in every sense. The ground level foyer is full of multimedia art and looks beautiful. Straight up in the lift to reception. The reception was a little flustered when I arrived, as the scanner for passport-copying purposes had malfunctioned. Service needs to lift it's game, but on the whole, the staff were polite. I think it's important though that management (even if the corporate structure of the business requires this), should not discipline/yell at/be unkind toward more junior staff members in the presence of a guest. It's just not what I want to see.
So eventually I got up to the room and WOW was I impressed. The rooms are spacious, well-designed, comfortable, enough room to have a few people over if you are in town with guests etc, and the bed - one of the most comfortable I've had the pleasure of staying the night in. The bathroom is beautiful, and the bath itself, really big and super relaxing. The windows are double-glazed, which is rare for China, so noise is LOW which was just great. The curtains are complete blackout, so I really have to say I had an amazing sleep, and an excellent experience at this hotel, despite the original hiccup.
I asked for a late checkout and was given one with no questions asked. I will definitely stay at The Cachet again.
