With just 20 odd rooms, this is a rather small place allowing the staff to take care of its guests on a first name basis. Don't get irritated by the rather drab exterior of the building. The rooms are neatly renovated and tastefully decorated. As other reviewers have noted, this hotel really has a great location as it sits right... More

Title says it all I think. Boutique hotel, nice rooms, breakfast OK but for evening meals probably better to go out - reception always happy to recommend good restaurants nearby - draw maps, write restaurant names in Chinese characters (often very necessary!) etc. Wouldn't hesitate to pay a return visit.
