The staff is very friendly and helpful. My girlfriend was headache at the midnight and they are willing to help to buy pain killer at that point of time. Very flexible & helpful arrangement. Able to help purchase Japanese sweet in advance. Besides, the hotel located beside the river and the view is simply superb.
Discreet & the amazing attention to detail
Initially our room looked into someone’s toilet! We asked to be moved and we were & given French champagne!
Beautiful accommodations - nice design and attentive staff
While you expect to pay extra for such luxury accommodation the price charged was excessive in my assessment compared to other accommodations available given the limited number of amenities available - 2 restaurants only in particular.
Italian restaurant and the Japanese restaurants are both good
There’s one guy at the concierge attitude is not very friendly! he never smile when you come to talk to him. And the rest of people are good.
The eggs and coffee were good. The bacon was also good.
Couldn’t eat lunch in hotel before we left. No warning that travel company (not staying at hotel) had priority reservations so no tables available. Poor communication from concierge about dinner reservations. Breakfast was incredibly overpriced.
