The common areas of the hotel are lovely. The art amazing. Gardens are beautiful. The rooms are dated. There is no light when you come in, only lamps. Turning them on is a chore and housekeeping turns them off. So at 5:00 in January you come into a dark room and have to find the lamps, the switches on the plugs, and then the lamp switches. The room has a 1980s stereo with a CD/cassette player, no way to play an MP3 player. The television is small and the remote doesn't work. There were also housekeeping issues- they did not remove dirty glasses and the turn down service did not arrive until after 21:30- unacceptable. The worst issue was the room location. Room was on the ground floor by a large gate. Curtains had to remain closed as I was looking directly into an Itsu, or something similar, and foot traffic was only a few feet away. The dark room was only made worse by this. The gate closing and opening was loud. The worst part was that the room had a horrible patchouli smell, I assume from a treatment room directly next door. I would not stay here again.
