Left my terrible food Costa cruise today and hopped into my rented car, arriving here at 7:30 pm. Bought a GPS in Hong Kong for US$70 so finding our way here is easy. Rainy evening and there was a little barrier at the entrance so when we pressed the button to say we are checking in, there's an umbrella waiting for me when I got off at the reception.
Again, am writing this review whilst lying on the bed in room 39 here. This is 10:50pm and we had just done an awesome dinner in the restaurant downstairs, and had met the young chef. I love food and cooking, so the food here simply tell me that the chef got a heart on what he is doing. Nada at the reception is very helpful and told me simple history about this six hundred year old building.
Such a great day. Puzzled for a while before booking this hotel as I always read the Triadvisor bad comments before booking a place. Glad that I had not been deterred this time and had chosen this hotel. Free parking, wifi, shuttle bus, breakfast, lovely view from the room, huge bed, nice staff..... I love this place!!
