        Dont worry about washroom and staff friendliness. Only things need to concern are room cleanliness, and you might find energy consuming to reach it place. Please take note that breakfast is provided, but just bread, cereal, milk and juice.More

        Chinatown
        Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
        sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
        sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
        blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
        Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
        almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
        continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
        the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
