One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Beautiful decor, awesome service from all the staff, reasonable rates and great location.
Location - nice quiet street. It's not on the " River Front" , but honestly you don't want to be on the filthy, run down riverfront. 240 street is lined with kitschy boutiques and some good eating establishments. You can also walk straight up the street to The Royal Palace in around 10 mins. Tuk Tuks outside the hotel were all great operators, especially number 5 and Mr Tom.( might have been the ice cream and pizza that we used to bring them :)
Room - we were booked into room 310 for 3 nights. We loved the hotel we extended twice. Room 310 is a lovely large room with high ceilings, big well appointed bathroom, safe, nice toiletries, floor to ceiling wardrobes,comfy bed with great smelling bed linen ( strange but true) . Decor is simple, minimalistic and stylish. Each night your room gets a turn down service with divine little biscuits and coffee candy, nice touch. This room also had a small balcony that had an interesting view to the west. I was always finding something new in the view.
Service- impeccable and flawless from all staff. Check in was a great experience. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
Spa - This was one area that didn't impress me. Facility it self was clean and smelt great. Chairs for foot massage were uncomfortable and the foot massage was lack lustre and just boring, couldn't wait for it to end. Also had a back and shoulder massage which was very ordinary compared to what I had been getting elsewhere for less than half the cost.
The Cafe- breakfast range was good, quality great, service great. Cafe atmosphere is a little sterile and school cafeteria like.
Rates- look they were a little higher than what we had been paying for good quality accommodation but by Australian standards this hotel would have been around $350 a night back home so we were more than happy to pay the rate. The place is awesome and worth every cent.
