Stayed at PH Imperial recently I found the hotel old world charm and tranquil. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and are kept in great condition. The staff are on top form - always attentive, friendly, professional, and the breakfast is superb.
I discovered Boudouir biscuits on the buffet which brought back childhood memories.
The conferencing facilities are also top-notch. The Free Wi-fi was fast and never dropped. From check-in to checkout, it was a great experience for my business trip.
