I have heard a lot good things about the hotel from taxi drivers to locals who have never stayed there, but seemed to have based their recommendations on brochures and its rich history. It made me look forward to my first stay there, which I now think is also my last as well. For the price, my expectations were definitely high, but I was utterly disappointed the moment I entered the room. It was roomy enough, but the bathroom was cramped, the internet connection is not included in the price (also slow), the room is quite spartan compared to the glitter of the lobby and the hallways, and you could hear the street, particularly early in the morning. I enjoyed the many artworks in the halls, but I thought my company?s money would have been better spent at the Holiday Inn. Visit the hotel and stay elsewhere.
