We stayed overnight and found the feel of the place lovely, so nice to have the tropical feel instead of the concrete boxes you get nowadays. We stayed in a tower room and could not really fault it. The only con would be the size of the en suite, which was very small but had everything you would need. The bedroom was spacious and immaculate. Unlike most hotels where you only get one easy chair (in a double room!!!) this room had a wicker loung suite, 2 singles and a 2 seater, which was very comfortable, as well as 2 chairs on the balcony.
We found the hotel staff very courteous and friendly and check in went smoothly.
The location is great just one block from the esplanade and close to restaurants. The Night Markets are just 2 blocks away.
Whilst our room faced Abbott street there was little traffic and so no road noise. The plantation shutters do not give you blockout darkness but we liked them and it did not bother us
