Not a hotel
Location is good but the room condition is not so good as expected. If you just need a bed to sleep, this is the one you need.

Room was small. Toilet was tiny. However staff was very helpful and friendly.

3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Small cozy hotel. Great locations with many eateries and shops around. The downside of this hotel is the bathroom facilities as it is way too small without having everything wet. Also the hotel is not located at lift landing location so if you have many luggage, it will be a challenge.
