This is a great hotel that we selected having read other reviews on Trip Advisor and we did not regret our decision once!
From the initial booking it was clear that this hotel is focused on customer sevice and ensuring that your stay will be a good one. Travelling with our two adult sons and mindful of the small number of rooms on each floor (just 5) we asked that our two rooms be as close together as possible - we were told best efforts would be made and when we checked in, we found out that our request had been remembered and both rooms were on the same floor. A good start.
We had Grand View rooms and they were perfect with plenty of drawer space and hanging areas. Super air conditioning (which was needed with average temps in the mid 30 degrees C), a very comfortable and large bed, quality TV with multiple channels, an easy to use but very secure safe, an ironing board, iron and coffee machine ensured that the room was well equiped. Our room had excellent sound proofing, room to room, but you could hear some corridor noise (although with only four other rooms on a foor this was minimal and simply individuals getting out of a lift and briefly talking before they accessed their own rooms).
I had read that some felt the power from the showers not to be too good but we found it to be more than adequate on the 25th floor. The bathroom was very well equippd with quality toiletries.
More than anything though the thing that set this hotel apart was the personal touches and the staff. They were extremely personable and had a true desire to assist. Little touches like the brownies on arrival, drinks in reception, the chocolates and weather forecast at night made you feel like you were a very honoured guest and that you were staying in a family orientated establishment - an oasis within one of the busiest cities in the world.
There was some buidling work adjacent the hotel but this did not affect our stay nor did it disturb us within our room.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel indeed, I would wonder why anyone would want to go anywhere ele!
