    Almost everything. The staff was amazing and the hotel is amazingly beautiful

    The tv control is in the wall, which is kind of annoying, but that really shouldn't make or break your decision to stay here

    I never recomend this hotel. Very nousy, music into hotel at 1 am. Water does not work!

  • Family with children

    Excellent location and the rooftop suite was luxurious

    Musty smell in the bathroom. Looks like mould behind the plaster that's lifting off of the bathroom ceiling.

  • Group of friends

    Music in the lobby bar was lots of fun and the peanuts were delicious

    Family suite - Need more bathmats to dry floor near jacuzzi as the wet steps are dangerous

    Great location and beautiful hotel if it was cleaned up.

    Room was not clean and was in poor condition.
