“Opulence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

This hotel is incredibly opulent and definitely worth seeing. The hotel is out of my price range, but it is free to look around. We enjoyed a $15 Cappuccino that was dusted with gold. There is also an ATM the you gives you gold instead of cash. There are areas that they don’t want you to take photos, but most places are ok, just be respectful.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

A must see attraction. The place is lavish, luxurious, and elegant. Floors and hallways have marble and gold finishing. The landscape is beautiful. If you can afford it, pamper yourself and spend a night there. Or take a public tour.

“Very opulent but not much to do”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

This building is beautiful but once you walk around there isn't much to do. It's close to a large shopping centre.

“Marble and gold and gorgeous ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

My recommendation .... Get a gold leaf cappuccino or a camelcino in the spectacular lobby cafe.
Hey it's expensive but well worth it for the wonderful experience of just sitting in such spectacular surroundings.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

The this is the old palace but coming from Chicago this palace was more fabulous than anything I have ever imagined. We went for the lunch buffet which was a little over priced but worth every penny. The cupcakes has gold flakes and the staff was fabulous about directing us on what could and could not be photographed and what things we needed to be sure to see.
