Beautiful, But Lazy and Mean Sprited
Posted Oct 21, 2007
Conde Neste allegedly described this as one of the 20 coolest hotels in the world. They need to get out more. The welcome was chilly enough as we waited 15 minutes in an empty reception to check in and be taken to our room. The room itself was beautifully restored, but some of the lights didn't work. It boasted a kitchen, but completely empty of anything you'd want to use in kitchen - not even a spoon, so what's the point? The bathroom had no shower. When we asked for a hair dryer we were told they were all being used by the other guests. Well, bully for them. When we asked for a bottle of water, it never arrived. And so it went on...All in all, a beatifully restored building with a great view, but for anything else you might reasonably expect from a hotel, they simply couldn't be bothered.
