Some minor problems:
On one day room service was really late (at about 2pm). We came in and wanted to relax for one hour before going out again and room service was in full swing. Besides we could watch that the cups were washed in the bassin of the bath. After watching that I did not want to use a cup any more.
The drinks in "Flair" are not the best. I ordered a "Singapore Sling" and could not taste any alcohol at all. The the prices are really high. I mentioned it to the waiter but I think he did not understand the problem.
On our last day we have to leave very early to catch a flight. The restaurant for breakfast was closed at this time so we could not have breakfast there. Because we had an arrangement which included breakfast we asked if we could have in-room breakfast. Yes, we could have one but we had to pay the full price for in-room dining. It was the first time I experienced that kind of service. Because we do not want to pay twice we left hungry.
But overall a good choice.
