This hotel is not worthy of its stylish surroundings. The hotel is old and dirty. The bedrooms are dated without modern furniture. The hot water is switched off at night so that it is impossible to have a hot shower after a late evening out.
The cost of this hotel would be comparable to the cost of a five star in many locations but this hotel is at best a 2 star hotel. The television did not work. there was no internet. The bathrooms were so dated that the tiles will soon be collector antiques for students of cultural studies examining 1970's cheap tiles.
The hotel was absolutely awful and potential guests need to be aware that they will feel aggrieved with the service they receive.
