We stayed for 2 weeks in January and the hotel is just what you need in a hectic and hot city. It is an oasis of calm as soon as you leave the busy street and step into the cool spacious reception area. Our room on the 19th floor had a wonderful city view and we watched the New Year fireworks from the comfort of our room. The room itself is spacious and very comfortable with a large desk for working at.
The shuttle into various points of interest around the city is great although the return times are hit and miss - you really need to be there 20 mins before the advertised time as I missed it a few times - i was 10 minutes early and waited until at least 15 minutes after the scheduled time. Taxis are so cheap and plentiful however, this isn't much of a problem.
The ladies and gentlemen who clean the rooms are excellent, friendly and pay attention to detail. One arranged for a sliding door to be fixed that we hadn't even realised was broken.
Breakfast is very good and the selection is vast. The chinese restaurant is extremely good and the restaurant manager very friendly and helpful. We also ate in the lounge a couple of times which has good simple food and cocktails and the pianist is a nice touch in the evening.
The only slight letdown was the pool - it's a lovely space but unheated and is quite a shock when you get in from the intense heat. Just watch peoples faces getting in! There is drinks service here but never seems to be anyone at the bar serving. Some more proactive service here would be nice. Also, this is a really nice spot to sit of an evening and have a glass of wine or cocktail outside, listening to the city sounds and watching the bats flying around but it closes at 9pm and actually the chair covers are often put away well before it is due to close.
Finally the concierge was brilliant - we had a tour company cancel on us at the last minute and at gone 8pm it took him about 5 minutes to sort us out a private tour for the following morning - which was excellent.
