The hotel's location is really good. So many food places near it! I love how it's just beside my favorite restaurant! The room is big enough for 2, since it's beside the road, it's a bit noisy but it wont bother you much. The only downside is the WiFi, it keeps on disconnecting but overall the service is good and...

The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly, although service can be slow at times. (we sometimes had to...

Staff service on checkin was appalling - whole experience from car valet at the front door to checkin staff felt like we were like an annoying interruption to their day. Room clean and good aircon. Breakfast was passable but not great.
