We had stayed in this hotel along with a delegation. The hotel is huge and so are the rooms. The service too is prompt and the hotel staff always has a smile. The breakfast was ok (an area where they can improve).

For a 4-5 star hotel, one assumes the little things would be done well. Like wifi in your room, someone who knows how to make a drink, and breakfast ingredients that haven't been sitting in the fridge for days... The tomatoes and fruit looked ancient, and I have a slight fever now. The room was nice, so was the shower....

Great contemporary styled hotel, I was upgraded to the corner suite which had all the room amenities you can ask for. Wifi is not very stable but I guess its a challenge of this city. The staff is very helpful both reception and restaurant. The spa and pool are nice, overall a relaxing stay.
