Beautifully set up hotel with a very good restaurant. We travelled with children and it was a great place to stay as they have a big garden around the hotel and a children's play ground. Staff were very nice and helpful too.

This hotel is like a resort with numerous gardens and pools so your room will either be garden-view or pool-view or both. Food is good, service is warm. Place is so relaxing. Great to stay if you need to unwind after a grueling day. Just in the heart of the city so very close to everything else you need, just...

I stayed in this hotel for a day. Food is delicious, pool is great. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. I'm just quite disturbed seeing lady guard and male guard kissing each other inside the hotel. But overall it was awesome!!

The grounds of the hotel are very nice, the staff are also great. Food is below average, restaurant appears understaffed and, despite the waiters best efforts, service is slow. The standard room was absolutely not worth the money, and not even close to the same standard as the rest of the hotel. It smelled like mould, tiny, had no view,...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days for a staycation. It feels like home the moment you come in. The staff were very warm and friendly. They'd greet you whenever they meet you.

The family room that I stayed in had a living room that was very spacious, a decent kitchen, and a warm atmosphere. The staff are friendly. Actually, this place somehow reminds me of The Manila Hotel - you feel engulfed in our culture as you walk through the hotel premises and grounds. I just don't like the location but other...
