Historic hotel, arquitecture, rooms limited
Posted Oct 9, 2016
The impressive lobby and great halls with it's decorative architecture is worth the stay, for one night, rooms small, even though it was a Club Deluxe? antiquated bathroom, very, very small, but clean. Rooms are less than what you would expect from a lobby like theirs. Bugis Asian restaurant in the Hotel, terrible, waited forever for simple starter dishes, when they arrived, one, the Tempura Squib was cold, after complaining, asked if main plates would also take a long time, if so to end the bad dinner experience at that point, they assured that they would be very fast, that they had a crew of Air Japan they were attending and that delayed everything for everyone else, but this time they would be on time. After more than 30 minutes, I stated that if the dishes were not about to come out to cancel the order. Result, they went to the kitchen, had not even started preparing our dishes so they presented the check for the starters. Spoiled Dinner and first visit to this Hotel, will never recommend this restaurant, on contrary, will make sure word of mouth and social media makes people aware of bad service. The architectural experience was good, but will return to more contemporary Hotels in the future, I can walk in to the Lobby, get a drink in the bar or court and have the same historical & arquitectural experience without having to stay and eat there.
