I am fully aware that this is a budget hotel and I chose to stay here with a few colleagues considering that the venue we are heading to is just across the road. We stayed here for 3 nights for a national scale conference so the hotel was fully booked. During breakfast it was chaotic as there were more people than the restaurant could cater, and the food ran out very quickly. Coming for breakfast at 8 am and half of the food was already gone, refill should have been done faster.
Let's talk about the room. If you are a solo traveller or just staying for the bed it's a great place to go. The mattress is comfortable. But don't expect any sorts of entertainment as the TV is placed in a very awkward spot where you will end up getting a sore neck. I stayed both in double bed room and single room during this 3 nights period, and in my opinion both have the same "awkward TV spot". I am also not happy with the bathroom. The double bed room has a very tiny shower cubicle that barely let me move about as I shower, let alone put on some clothes in there! The shower head is located right next to the towel hanger so the water drizzles oh your towel. The towel hanger is also placed very high close to the ceiling, I don't think it's ergonomical. Strangely enough, the single bed room has a bigger shower cubicle since it is merged together with the toilet (double bedded room has separate cubicles for shower and toilet).
When you make your booking, be very careful of what you order. A single room is really a single room for ONE. This is why I said I slept in two different bedroom type during my stay. I was informed from the start that there will be no room for an extra bed, and since the hotel was fully booked I cannot amend my booking. So for one night I had to bring a sleeping bag as I had to share the room with my colleague. Talking of amending bookings and customer service, the staffs were very helpful though. So were they when we asked for some paperwork to be handed to our office as an official travel receipt. Thank you, but I don't think I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.
