The rooms are exactly as people describe them, very close to being amazing, I would personally recommend the hills side, for a more quite, picturesque view. You get the whole harbor experience at the restaurant anyway. I only have a few suggestions to make the upper experience really impeccable as advertised.
-Starting with the simple fact that there is no make up mirror, to draw an eye line you either have to do acrobatics in the well lit bathroom mirror or more or less blind make up in the toilet table.
-The free stuff, yes, very sweet. But to be honest for that price and a hotel of that magnitude that is quite literally peanuts. I would much rather there were a few good English speaking film channels, or even a reasonable on demand service and if you wanna step up your game, yeah why not offer video games. Right now there is no viable film option for English speakers, a big shame.
-The wifi is , as expected, for free and everywhere. But it constantly disconnects, and takes at least 15 seconds and some fiddling to reconnect, that is what I can accept at a train station public wifi, but not at "home"
- also "at home" I have the possibility to plug in my iPhone next to my bed, as I like most people use it as an alarm. At the upper house I needed to unplug the phone to do so.
The Greys caffee has a grade of its own and it is not so good as the rest.
- 3 days in a row I asked for a filter coffee, I got an Americano, when on the third day I insisted and got the manager, I finally got a filter coffee, it is a very common request in the western world and makes you feel like a real #ick when you have to insist.
- The omelette I had two times was both times runny ( not done in the middle) and tasted really bla- this is also not acceptable for a hotel that size.
- everything else in the restaurant was not exceptional, but of course good.
