Once we arrived in the afternoon, we were greeted by the staffs. They were polite and helpful. They took the effort in helping us to weigh our luggage prior heading to the...

We were pleasantly surprised when checked in, the room was a tad bit small but not a problem. It was very clean, bed was comfortable, and the best part is they had every toiletry and necessity you can think of supplied (bathroom). We didn't pay much for the 3 night stay so we weren't expecting to find razors, q-tips and...

The location here is great, you have a lot of food options and it is walking distance to the ferry dock. I had no issues with the room or the staff, however the only annoying this was you can pretty much hear any movement from upstairs or the rooms beside you. I think they were either doing some renovating directly...
