I had booked a so-called 'harbor view' room which turned out to be on the 7th floor where part of the view was in fact obstructed by the building on the other side of the street. I had also booked a business package (with internet, newspaper and breakfast included). However, it turned out that there is no wireless internet in the hotel (apart from in the reception area) so I was unable to get online with my iPad in my room. Never received a newspaper either.
Finally, the aircondition system in the hotel rooms is a joke. The temperature in my room was 27 degrees when I arrived and never got below 24 degrees despite the aircon working at maximum setting.
In short, an overpriced hotel with a good location but with inferior services!
