A really relaxing space missing the most important part, a comfortable place to sit. The couch was foam and kept disappearing under us. Couldn’t sit for too long.

Had higher expectations for the room. Looked a little like a prison on entering the floor. Great views but only one balcony chair and when asked for another reception brought up a foot stool. Was not told about breakfast options, though when asked the porter they did follow up with a call quickly. No aircon which was noted in advert -environmental reasons - yet large inefficient appliances in the room instead. No flyscreen on balcony door (noise from road underneath would have precluded leaving door open though anyway). A bit disappointed especially for the pricetag.

Didn’t like the layout of the app, the fact that when walking in first thing is the bed. Also the bathroom wasn’t very private. The building is very modern. Customer service excellent.
