    Wonderful new Hotel close to Crown and all transport

  • Older travelers

    Nothing except the breakfast at Maze was really nice and the service staff throughout the hotel were really nice and friendly.

    Pool was cold, check in queue was long and tiresome, check out queue was long and tiresome. Smoking room booked but the room absolutely stank. The ventilation was not working and we had to be moved to another room. The bed was uncomfortable, the shower was just dreadful. We have stayed many places in many hotels over the world, and never experienced anything like this. Totally overpriced. Reception slow and tedious and not friendly.

    the reception area has poor lighting.although our room was lovely the bathroom lighting was also very dark.

    My partner and I were very pleased with your Hotel! As soon as we opened the door to our room we fell inlove with everything. The view, the space, the bathroom, the bed, the three T.vs and the bits and pieces to make our stay more enjoyable:) The staff were absolutely wonderful in orde to insure our stay was pleasant and the complimentry free upgrade to the loft was the most best thing in the world to us. We absolutely loved the loft and are most defintly going to stay again! Thank you

    We loved our stay at the Crown Metropol. The beds were divine and I thought the lobby was also fantastic. The idea of having the hotel linked to the casino was also fantastic. The rooms were very spaciuos and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

    Good privacy, great service.9.5/10, . Would most certainly stay there again and recommend.

    Disliked the phone calls put through to room in the middle of the night that were not our calls.

  • Older travelers

    I have stayed in this hotel before so I thought I would use it again for this short trip; I like the contemporary design of the lobby & its vast & airy space; I love the bed & everything in it is clean-fresh & comfortable..it feels like home; The fixtures seem still new or very well maintained; The presence of soft to touch bathrobes & jandals are a nice touch; The in room dining was well presented by a nice lady & the food was very comforting. The front desk & the concierge staff were all solicitous & courteous. Finally, I thought I have totally lost my scarf after reporting it so & got the housekeeping's reply that no scarf was found. However, the hotel surprised me with a call from their duty manager Avy 2 days after I have checked out, & said that they have located my scarf and will courier this directly to my home.. this is an exceptional service indeed!

    The corridors in the hotel are not well lighted; perhaps the lights can be brightned up for an easier search of the room number as you walk past the various rooms. I believe this is where I dropped my scarf & did not notice it as the hallway lights are a bit muted; Another thing, in some instances, there could be a waiting time for your phone call to be replied to and all you will get is a recorded response similar to the ones that you get from call centres of banks & phone companies.

    the breakfast was really bad, very ordinary

  • Single
    10.0

    The cleanliness was outstanding. The sleek design made it enjoyable to stay in (the glass shower screens meant I didn't fell hemmed in but I had privacy with the sliding screens when I needed it, and the even level of the floor entrance in to the shower entrance was easy for people with bad backs like me). It is an extremely convenient location to the city and other facilities (I was at a convention in the convention centre). The beds were extremely comfortable. Who ever did the designing and appointing thought of everybodies needs!

    We were there mainly for relaxation and shopping so the location is excellent.

    The lighting in the bathroom,we both struggled to see.
