Top class,highly comfortable with a lot of privacy. My stay at the Premier is always memorable and I appreciate the responsiveness and knowledgeably of the staff. The unobtrusiveness of refurbishment process

The condition of the room was way too poor. The carpet had a smell and safe and aircondition was not working. The lifts and its glasses are very dirty. We had move out on the same evening and re-booked at the Premier Hotel ICC

Nothing changed from a year ago, except the new restaurant which is overpriced. Building operations ongoing still!!! Try and sleep with only a fan on in this heat!? Can not open the windows as the staff makes noise in the receiving courtyard till 1 in the mornings??? Great location, but facilities and service needs to be jacked up

Perfect location, spacious room. Clean and modern bedding and bathroom. Only thing short was more tv channels, specially sports channels. Even let us have a later check out due to ironman event; was able to have a shower before heading to airport.

Aircon didn't work on the first day of my stay; Dinner plates were not always cleared away after use; During my stay there is a day (17/01) where i ordered supper and it was never delivered with no reason for such given. The staff at reception were helpful however the housekeeping and maintenance needs to be improved.

The area that the hotel is in however is not the greatest. The staff are all friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The elevators...
