This is a really beautiful property all through the building. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the lobby area is stunning. The little bar makes great cocktails. the chinese restaurant on-site is superb and also very attractive. Breakfast was excellent and the staff throughout were friendly and helpful.
Our room was at the back (away from the river) and in the centre of the u-shaped building so didn't get much noise from the street. I guess the rooms at the end might get some street noise.
We had a group of nine including small kids and teenagers and everyone was made to feel welcome.
Cons: The a/c was a bit annoying. It seemed to switch on and off throughout the night but it felt like the thermostat guiding it was not in our room: at times it was hot but the a/c had switched off. The windows only opened a few centimetres so not much use for cooling the room.
