Same friendly reception and service that we know… Same beautiful haven, that we love… We feel that a refresh of the interior and decor and art - will be a very good thing to do. Ask yourself what has changed in the hotel, in the last 3 years? Our answer is, nothing. Refresh the colours, refresh the deployment of the artworks

Beautiful, high security boutique hotel.
This was a shot stop over and I wish I could have stayed longer. Beautiful, secure, old-school hotel with exceptional, friendly service. Being an older building, there are fewer wall outlets than you may be used to. Don't expect a USB charing port at the desk. Very comfortable bed gave me a good night's sleep. The HVAC is powerful but takes a moment to figure out which control to manipulate. The beautiful shower has multiple heads and handles, so it also take a little-trial-and error to figure out what turns on what. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced. A continental buffet is there if you are in a rush, and the mushroom and cheese omelet I had was delicious.

2/10 Poor

Bad Business Practices!!
What a huge disappointment to learn that I was downgraded from a presidential suite to a standard room- room was booked some time back, and I didn't remember the room type upon check in, plus it was the end of a very long trip.. I was made aware of the downgrade when reviewing my nights collected with called the property . They were bounced from person to person, and hung up on multiple times. Disgraceful!!!!. What kind of sham operation is this! Thankfully, is going to compensate me for the difference in cost. A few other things to mention: Get rid of the instant coffee. Stop being cheap and put in a Nespresso machine like other hotels. The room was over sprayed with room freshener. The smell was so strong I had to leave the window open half the night. Reception agreed that the smell was strong and attempted to move me to another STANDARD ROOM, but it was facing the street. Perhaps, if I had been in the room I reserved, it would not have been an issue. Stay away from this place!
