Editorial review:

This outstanding hotel has an amazing location. There is a chandelier in the lobby, a laptop in every room, and chic restaurants with global cuisine. The staff is incredible and remembers your name. Some of the rooms are a bit small, though, and not up to par. The rates are often discounted to about W200,000.

                      Good location but the hotel seemed more like an upper class Love Motel than a luxury hotel. The shower curtain was on the otherside of the glass and could be controlled by a remote station next to the bed. I found this surprising for a 4/5 star hotel. The deluxe double room had two large mirrors either side of the bed and two giant lamps over the bed. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean but I think any hotel in this price range will offer these. The hotel bar was overpriced, $18 dollars for a bottle of heineken was a little cheeky in my opinion.

                      We stayed 4 nights in The Plaza Hotel. Entering the lobby we were already greeted and our suitcases taken care of. On the spot our names were checked (we never even got to the counter) and we were whisked upstairs for a personalized check-in at the Club Lounge. Very friendly, personalized service. The room was very stylish, though not big. Everything was great, a wonderful comfortable bed with soft linen, every item was electronically controlled from the bedside with nice dimming light features, a small but very complete bathroom, Hermes amenities etc etc. WiFi was included and did not need any fancy login: it just worked great. We enjoyed every moment of the stay, including the Club Lounge breakfast as well as the excellent quality buffet breakfast downstairs. Within minutes the asst. mgr booked a show for us and upon finally checking out also that experience was as easy and well-serviced as our arrival. Simply a wonderful experience smack in the heart of the city. Strongly recommended (and get a Club Room; it's worth it)!

                      Very difficult to find anything wrong with this hotel! Only tiny comment is that the temperature in the elevators was set to below-freezing we assume. But those were short rides anyway.

                      The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, and speak English well. We were lucky enough to get a free room upgrade due to overbooked rooms. Rooms are immaculate and modern. Beds are very comfortable; not hard and not soft. WiFi signal was weak in the room, but an ethernet cable was provided for wired Internet access. Very centrally located, with the shopping district close by and the major sites within walking distance.

                      Breakfast expensive when not included in the room price.

                      The room is quite cosy and modern. The Location is great.

                      But the pool is quite disappointing, the indoor pool temperature is way too hot, not comfortable at all, and the shower room is facing the pool, once you open the shower door, you can see the pool in front of you, the whole setting is very poor and odd.
