Massive place, very posh, very modern.
Pro: Very clean, very comfortable, superb bed. Air-conditioning works - and works quietly. Meals are above average (the salmon is amazing!). Professional, multilingual staff. Large bath, large separate shower. Soundproofing is pretty good (outdoor international festival a block away was just barely audible). Three minutes on foot to a lovely harbour waterfront.
Con: Everything costs, including in-room coffee machine.
Four and a half stars.
