  1. This is a great hotel , but most of it has been changed since it was first deigsned by Anouska Hempel , even the red room and black and white room in the photos are the closest to the original design , but have had subtle changes and lack the perfection of Hempel’s design ! None of the public spaces have any link to Anouska Hempels first design , they were made over and ruined what was an outstanding hotel !
