Got bumped to the Palace hotel for two nights due to overbooking at Le Meridien. Arrived late evening after dark and first impressions of the room ( number 439) were good, in that it was nicely furnished although too small for a five - or even a three star- hotel. The air conditioning turned out to be very noisy which did not make for a good nights sleep. The real surprise came the next morning when we realised just how dark and dismal the room was. the windows fronted on to an enclosed atrium almost entirely devoid of daylight, requiring the room light to be on at all times. This meant that the curtains had to be closed if any privacy was required e.g when getting changed etc. Upon checking the floor plan, it also transpired that the room was approximately half the size of any other room. We were very unhappy with the room and spent the absolute minimum of time there. As we were already required to move hotel after two nights we decided not to request an additional room change and we also understood that there were no other rooms available.
The rest of the hotel was great. Really enjoyed the infinity pool on the roof and the asian restaurant was really special. All in all, this could have been a very enjoyable stay, but certainly not possibe in room 439 (or the equivalent room on each floor) My advice - do NOT accept it.
