... And I enjoyed it immensely!
I stayed at one of the Transfer Suites and was charmed by the decor and furnishings. The old-world-meets-contemporary design just appeals to me.
The one hour Malay massage was relaxing and just what I needed. I could've gone for another round.
The food seemed designed for a European clientele, but that's probably because you can get local fare as soon as you step out of the hotel.
While the hotel is in town, things get quiet after sundown, so the hotel was the perfect place to just relax but be a short distance away from the city centre.
If I have anything to complain, it's that I couldn't call room service directly from my phone, and that the toilet could use a little scrubbing.
But other than that, a thoroughly enjoyable stay!
