I was on a road trip and stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It's strategically located within Times SQ with Imago shopping complex. Housekeeping didn't do a good job on cleaning it's toilet, so my first impression of the plc was down the tubes. I had to request them to specifically clean certain areas. If you want cheap , this...

It was just a night's trip but it was a good stay. The twin bed room I took was spacious. I like the fact that there is a sofa in the room. The bathroom was clean and also spacious. A plus point for a stay here is it's just next door to Imago Mall where you can get almost anything...

Centralized location at a slightly elevated price. Close to several malls, waterfront and all within 10mins walking distance. No breakfast though, and the rooms are just on the average side. Nothing fancy but needs improvements and an overhaul. However, Breakfast is just around the corner with plenty of eateries. Night fall, the place is quiet and by 8pm all eateries...

Tiles use in toilet /shower room is extremely Slippery. The owner should not use this type of tiles which is so dangerous for every one expecially the children and the elderly. Tiles are extremely smooth surface which normally use for house living and dining room. When it get wet, it is extremely Slippery! ! Be caution.

It's kind of convenient because it's just next to Imago. Do not expect much for this price. Overall the girls at Front counter were very very very rude. They don't know how to say thank you and never smile as if I owe them money. I have problem in using their Wi-Fi with my phone on the second day but...
