I loved this hotel The bed was the size of my bedroom at home. If you are shorter than my 6 ft, you may need a pogo stick to get in!! The bathrobes would be worth tossing everything out of my suitcase to make room for......of course, I mean after purchasing!!! Right near the opera house and the lovely lake and its pagodas. I did a lot of souvenir shopping by getting lost in the maze of many-shops streets. Those small shops' owners were so friendly and the prices so low I didn't have the heart to bargain seriously. My tip? Wake up early and take a cyclecab ride around the nearby lake. There is almost no traffic at 5:30-6:00 am. The lake is a park, too. Tae Chi groups and solo joggers, beautiful flowers, all a serene backdrop to the ride. The cyclecab (my name) is a human-peddled bicycle with a spacious passenger seat over the front wheel; the handlebars are the back of the seat.
The hotel's staff is marvelous and helpful; the buffet almost excessive; a quiet and luxurious haven in a capital of motor bike madness.
