Without a doubt, the house is stunning. We had booked and paid US$225 per night for the livingstone suite (signature suite) but were upgraded to the Mercury Suite (superior suite). The room is also nice, great to have tea and coffee making facility, 2 sinks and relatively quiet (the call to prayer might wake you), free wifi. They did not have our booking the system when we arrived and so they gave us a free massage treatment in the cinnamon spa which was nice. The room though is very dark and i think some bright lighting needs to be installed that can be switched on optionally when you really need to see what you're doing (make-up/setting the combination lock to open your suitcase!). Personally i did not like the 70's style taps used and that the shower tap was dirty (no reason not to have sparkling taps), nor the rickety toilet seat and some may have a problem with the fact that there was no door to the toilet nor the shower. the gift bag which is supposed to be in each room was missing in ours and we had to ask for it - it was delivered promptly. I would stay again but not at this room rate, i think the Christmas supplement of US$25 per person per day pushed the already ridiculously high price way beyond what the room was worth,
