Pro " We loved our stay at Seven Terraces. The staff members were fantastic, always professional and courteous, with a genuine human touch. Jason was particularly kind and capable. The design makes a respectful but imaginative intervention in the original shophouse design, carving out a grand atrium, as well as several lovely common spaces where guests enjoy breakfast, afternoon tea, etc. We stayed in a Terraced Duplex Suite and felt as though we had a home away from home. We rarely stay in the same hotel twice, but would happily return to Seven Terraces. Also, the in-house restaurant Kebaya cannot be missed! "
Con " Not the case for our party, but those with mobility issues would have trouble with the stairs, at least in the Terraced Duplex Suite. If so, request a suite with the bed set up downstairs. "
