6/10 Good

Clean room, amazing view for breakfast
The room met expectations without going far beyond. The room was clean, comfy bed, appropriate soaps/cosmetics and aesthetically pleasing. Wish there was some view from the balcony and usb chargers for the price we paid. The view for breakfast was amazing but the price is very expensive for what it provided. If i could do it again I would skip the high breakfast cost and just get a tea or coffee to soak in the view. Overall satisfied with my stay but not blown away and would explore other options for the price.

2/10 Poor

If you like to sleep before midnight - then avoid this hotel at all costs. Next door is a nightclub on the marina that plays loud music every night; and only closes at just after midnight. Not an issue if you only sleep after midnight - but trying to get sleep before then is impossible. Breakfast is weird. The staff sit you down, and then you don’t hear from them again. They don’t deliver pastries to your table, don’t ask if you want a coffee etc. Seems there’s only 1-2 people working at breakfast. Either severely understaffed or just rude and ignorant. I’ve stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world, and the number one thing I look for is a relaxing and comfortable stay. Due to the nightclub issue alone, and the extremely loud music, I feel this hotel is not deserving of a 5 star.
