Good location, Good service, Rooms a bit dated
Hotel was nice and in a central location. Lobby was nice, reception in general had good service, although we were given wrong advice by one staff member which resulted in some inconvience to our travels, in general they did make an effort to help us, and room service was helpful and very prompt. Rooms are quite small and bathroom is a bit dated.

Room & Service
I booked 1 double bed + 1 single bed room, the room was very small for 3 person. Difficult for 3 person to roam in the room after opening all the 3 luggage we have. Small until when doing big business in toilet, outside can hear very clearly. The receptionist (referred to male) are all very stuck up face, unfriendly, when ask them whether hotel offer free shutter bus to hotel, they replied you rulely “no”. They don’t even share that there are airport shutter with a chargeable price behind the hotel only when we approached another lady receptionist. She is nice enough to share all the info include pricing. As for hotel room, we end up upgrade to a 3 sungle bed room with an additional of $55/night. Sq 35m which is big enough for the 3 of us to roam and put our things.
