      • Couple

        Location, staff very friendly and lounge. Will like to stay there again

        Closet in suite small, very small gym

        • Average rating
          10.0
      • Single

        The proximity to office. Nice shower

        A bit noisy for such a luxury hotel at 4:00 am - due to some sort of shaft running through room. Also, someone ordered room service using my name/room number - then complained service was too slow - so no charges were levied for the food. Checkout Staff told me that since I didn't get charged - it shouldn't matter i.e everything is OK - but matters to me that they didn't verify who ordered the food in the first place- wasn't from me or my room. Probably won't go back for that reason

        • Average rating
          8.2
      • Family with children

        Great location, the Lexicon lounge.

        Breakfast wasn't great - cappuccino barely tepid, hot chocolate tasted of nothing, food average.
