Fake non-smoking room, why don't convert all non-smoking room to smoking room. So all non-smoker will skip the visit. Terrible cigarette smell from corridor to the room, it totally affect my rest due to full of cigarette smell.

Stated “world’s largest hotel” but it’s world’s smallest hotel. Only for sleeping. Floors are very sticky and whole room is dirty. Walls are not sound proof at all, can hear neighbour talking. Housekeepers in the morning drag drawers around in every room (whole morning hearing that noise). Drunk man running around ringing room bells including mine. Due to RMCO one lift can only fit 4 pax, we took about 1 hour to get a lift to the 1st floor. A friend couldn’t wait he took the emergency staircase, reached 1st floor to find out exit door is locked, he had to run up again and wait for the lift. How can an emergency door be locked? I wouldn’t even rate 1 star if I didn’t have to.

Small room but good enough for a short stay. Our primary agenda is to enjoy our morning & evening walk while breathing the fresh chill air. Hibernate in the comfort room. Value for money and very close to the casino.

I stayed in the old block as it was a complimentary room for the night. Small room with a window. Bed was comfortable enough. Bathroom was small but good. Amenities were not provided at all. Had to purchase from the convenience store downstairs. There was a TV in the room with some channels. I guess it's good for a night.
