Short of 5 stars
Hotel has great location but is under construction and you cannot access the gardens and terrace which is the best part of the hotel! It should say that in red before you book here. The room has no neospresso coffee maker which is crazy for a five star hotel. No coffee or tea maker and it makes it inconvenient. I dont want to have to wake up and deal with people or room service. The mattresses are also stiff (feels old!) but the room is clean and large. The staff is amazing!!!!
