Bougainvillier Hotel

A good riverside option

What we say: 3.5 stars

With many of the rooms decorated in Neo-Shanghai style, the Bougainvillier straddles a slightly uncomfortable place between taste and ostentation, but we think it pulls it off. The suites overlooking the river are massive, heavy, dark wood furniture affairs which survive because of the space and light coming in through the French doors on to the balcony. They are, however, immaculate, as are the bathrooms, which are small in relative terms. Given the choice between here and Amanjaya, we’d actually go for here, not just on price but because the rooms feel like they have a little more soul to them too. The service was slightly less polished, but somehow all the more charming for it too. The deluxe rooms at the back are smaller, and somewhat more contemporary and less heavy, though with very limited views — unless you like rooftops. On the roof of Bougainvillier itself, you’ll find the bar and restaurant, which has a covered area for those hot, rainy days. There is no elevator, so you’ll have earned that first drink.
