Love the hospitality from all the staffs. If I need to pick on 1 thing to improve it would have to be the sound proofing especially if you are staying at the lower floor as anyone guest who stays above just need to pull a chair or walk a lil bit harder we would get a full load of the sound. While I am perfectly aware that it’s a colonial building and the owners are preserving it to the best level possible but perhaps additional carpet would do the trick?

Accomodation Hiccup
During my stay , the hotel notified that breakfast IS NOT SERVED ( to all guests) , which they had already informed among others. On the other hand, had stated on their booking website that a continental breakfast is included in my hotel rate. Please rectify this misinformation.! Thank you.
