What can you say about something so close to perfection? The bed was amazingly comfortable, the service immaculate, the views of the river unmatched. The spa incredible and the extra surprises in your room when you got back from a long day a real delight. All in all a true 5 star, with little room for improvement. My only complaint was I happen to be facing a street party one night for university students and when I mentioned it to the concierge he told me it was the pool music and that it would be over soon. The music continued loud until well past 2am and they finally moved me, however a little reluctantly.
Quick side note, be careful with the taxi drivers! Everyone of them tried to screw me. Watch the meter at all times, as they have a tendency to hit buttons that increase the charges or they tell you a price prior to getting in which is 5 X what you should be paying. Cabs have meters, never negotiate a price anywhere and remember cabs are cheap so make the conversion in your head to decide if its too much or not. EVERY cab driver tried to rob me one way or another….
