A historic building with tremendous potential. But Jumeirah, which is a strange mish mash of hotels lacking any coherence, has done a pretty terrible job with the decoration and floor plans. Bath rooms are tiny (I had booked a premium room) and the decoration quality and esthetics are more appropriate for an uninteresting bland four star hotel than that of a supposed luxury hotel in a building which could potentially be full of character.
Service is average but not top notch luxury service. The breakfast delivered to our room was different every day even though I ordered the same things during the four days we stayed there!!
Conclusion. Its ok buy they should focus less on talking about the history and more on the decoration and service. The patisserie could be wonderful, the lounge areas as well, the rooms could have a classic epoque style and sophisticated decor.......But they are not.....
