The lobby stinks, it is quite incredible how bad it smells. The bathrooms in the rooms the same. The building outside only looks nice in the night. During the day you see how the facade is falling apart.

Breakfast was very good, spa is good. Very dissapointment with staffs not very friendly and unhelpful. The bed was not comfortable at all. The bathroom has no window and no extractor fan so it made the bed room smell damp.

You can feel the history of the building, it is very glamorous, the attached spa (which does cost extra) is incredible. It felt like a film set from a fancy spy film. The bistro and restaurant were great. The room was more spacious than i expected. This hotel exceeded my expectations in almost every way.

Lovely oldy Worldy feel, clean rooms, but old furniture- reception staff very helpful. Lots of character. The pools in the Spa have the ‘Wow’ factor

Good position close to trans & metro. It’s an old hotel with lots of character , the rooms are a bit tired looking but clean, comfortable & spacious. The breakfast buffet is huge & also caters for gluten free & vegetarian . Half price in spa next door if staying at this hotel.

Excellent breakfast but in general hotel is awful, dirty and old, max two stars. Firstly got single room which was like 50’ century, not renovated at all and dirty. After one night managed to change the room, it was acceptable but not fulfill current standards. Never again and this was my first time ever I need to complain hotel room.
