Booked 4 Deluxe Queen rooms but was given Premier floor with 2 Suites. All 4 rooms were very cold and we have to switch it off for the 2 nights stay. Rooms were dated but comfortable. Wifi was adequate but need to change password everyday. There's a bridge to City Square about 800m away. Overall experience ok.

First and last time visit.
Super disappointed with the service on the day we check in. The receptionist give ZERO attention to us and treat us as if we owe them money. No basic courtesy at all. Not even a thank you. So Unwelcoming. When we got in our room, we found a used condom underneath our bed. It just shows that they didn’t clean up properly and it’s very unhygienic. The waiting time for the lift is the worst as we have to wait minimum 5-10mins. Very disappointing experience as we can hardly go up and down the hotel as it will take atleast 20mins just to get our delivery food below. Really hope they can bulk up on their SERVICE, Room cleanliness and proper lift service. Overall I advice anyone staying here to check your room properly and make sure your bed is clean too.
