The three biggest issues - 1) there was mosquitos in our room. I killed 5 in the bathroom within minutes of being in the room, and we covered...

I visited the city for a business trip and the hotel was really great. Although it is outside the city by about 25 km but it is worth it. It has great views on Quaroon lake and the hotel furniture has a great vintage style,loved it !

Was OK for one night. Other hotels were mainly in the past the king's palace but are but more luxurious than this one and more renovated...

I was shocked when I arrived as this hotel has got an extraordinary reputation since 40s. The lobby was very hot and humid. The restaurant has small variety either for breakfast or dinner. On breakfast you can have fresh bread every other day. The air conditioner in the rooms is not working probably. The toilets are not regularly cleaned up....

This hotel is still keeping its authenticity, The decorations , furniture , paintings . Even some worn out polish of the furniture gives the old authentic touch of a hotel that was the target of the famous movie stars as well as politicians like Churchill who still has a hall named after him The only draw back is the low...

Traditional & Classic Rooms with very old TV not Screens. You should ensure the View or you will get a View on the Roof of the Building, that is really awful. Food is Tasty & Resturant Staff showed Hospitality. Pool with no Heater & during my Stay it did not Work.
