What a beautiful hotel. It is a heritage listed building and is stunning. The rooms were hotel size not your usual asian size… It was clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was modern the shower hot. The atmosphere and ambience was relaxing and calm and we would have loved to stay longer but had to catch a flight the next morning. There is a restaurant in the building. We will return. It is in a great location of Chulia street.. walking distance to the Prangin Mall, Little India and Armenian street. We had a room next to a mosque so were woken at 4:30am with loud speaker 'praying'.
