I have stayed at this hotel several times before. However, this time, there were problems. First, the air conditioning in my room never worked, and even with the windows open, it was very, very warm all of the time. I reported it to the front desk several times but was told that everything was operating properly. Not true. Also, the friendliness of the front desk is not quite as welcoming as in my previous trips. Perhaps this is due to so many demanding travelers from all over the world.
The room was comfortable (except for the non functioning air conditioning), and the bed was okay. The room was very clean, and the housekeeping staff was superb at doing their job of making up the room every day. The extra breakfast is worth the money, and the restaurant is absolutely superb in offering the very best of international cuisine. And the beer...well what can I say? It's amazing!
