Stunning hotel with great architecture and fabulous pool area but the rooms are dated and really need a proper refurb to justify the prices charged - it's probably 3.5/5 overall. Everything is very expensive - all at Western 5 star prices, as soon as you step outside of the hotel, you realise quite how much you are being overcharged. Staff...

Such a wonderful hotel with all the luxury trimmings. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of choice. The staff are so polite and nothing is ever too much trouble. Booked a room in the tower wing but upgraded to palace wing.

I was in awe when I entered this hotel. The beautiful & colorful flower arrangements, the paintings, the marble tiles floors, the waiting areas and the weeping wall just captivate all my senses. I was grateful that they offered a tour of the hotel because it has a lot of history. We managed to see the Old wing with it...
