The hotel is beautiful and very charming. The rooms are modern while the public areas of the hotel are lovingly restored antique and Perranakan furniture, decorations and carved wood wall dividers. The floors are beautiful and colorful old tiles from Europe.
The garden patio eating area was a delight. The breakfast buffet food was average, the coffee was local, very strong and tasty.
The Off Street PARKING provided by the hotel could KILL you:
The parking area is locked so a hotel employee must go unlock the gate for you. The parking area is small so when the hotel is full the cars are parked in the driveway area. If you are one of the unlucky people and have your car parked in the driveway area(parked there as instructed by the hotel employee) then you will get a phone call to your HP and room asking you to move your car.
So when you are at dinner, getting a foot massage or sleeping at 7:00 in the morning YOU WILL BE CALLED. Do not give the hotel your hand phone number, it could ruin a nice dinner or massage.
Since my group of friends was planning on sleeping until 9:00 a.m. some of us were:
WOKE UP TWO HOURS EARLY by the hotel so the car could be moved again !!!! If only they had told us we would have given them the car key.
A woman in our group was very tired and need her sleep.
She was in a car accident later that and smashed up the car.
The hotel off street parking could kill you.
