Really liked my stay at the Ranee. The people are so friendly there. The room is lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast is yummy. I liked that they changed the menu each day so it gave me a chance to try new dishes. Plus, the hotel is in a great location. Close to so many sites and the river; which...

After a bit of research we picked the Margaret Suite. It's a lovely, stylish room with a terrace with sun loungers and, if you stand up, a view of the river. But it is also very noisy, both from the street and from inside (a/c or perhaps water system?), and not great unless you're a very heavy sleeper. Breakfast could...

I love The Ranee for its rooms' design and meticulous appointments. However, the staff doesn't greet you as you walked past the reception and there are no thank yous and smiles when you have paid and checked out.
