The historical hotel has 16 bedroom apartments, 5 granite-paved courtyards, 7 staircases and 220 windows. The paradigm Chinese courtyard house has been embellished with Chinese timber carvings and porcelain works, as well as Gothic louvered windows and art nouveau stained-glass panels. The establishment is an edifice of impressive delicacy and awesome in its feng shui subtleties. This inner-city mansion was acquired in 1990 in an extremely dilapidated state. A restoration was carried out and culminated in the project being judged the winner in the UNESCO Heritage 2000 Awards. Guests are welcomed in the lobby and additional amenities include a TV lounge, a dining room, Internet access and there is a car park for those arriving by car.
For a unique heritage experience, the owner-run hotel offers short- and long-term residential stays in uniquely themed bedroom apartments. These vary in size from the Scholar's Suite and others of equally exotic disposition. All rooms are en suite and feature a shower, a double bed, Internet access, as well as individually regulated air conditioning, ceiling fans and a personal valet service.
