There is much to commend this hotel despite a few problems. We stayed for 3 nights and were upgraded to a very spacious suite with a balcony and access to a large outside shared terrace. The entrance area and dining room are really lovely and the rooms beautifully furnished. The all male staff could not be more attentive in a discrete manner, though a little quiet. Breakfast was disappointing, often not hot enough and with no lovely surprises. Dinner was good though only if you like curry, with fish, chicken and vegetable curries more or less the same each day; plentiful. The manager was really helpful and the staff fixed the ac promptly. Being high above the city it was beautifully fresh at night. It's too far to walk from the city, a tuk-tuk was only 500rps (£2.50).
