Superb location for Shoppers
Location Superb. But I stayed 4 nights there was no housekeeping, no change sheets, room a bit dirty. A bit troublesome to have to bring soiled towel to reception on a different floor to exchange for a new one. I was told I need to pay for housekeeping, That is bad. Room small but still ok for the price. Airport bus is just across the road. A lot restaurants near by. Quite convenient,

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This is the poorest hotel I have ever stayed. First, the so-called 'hotel' situates only from 7th to 9th floor of a commercial building. It is in fact a hostel. Second, I am living in a room on the 7th floor next to the so-called 'hotel lobby'. I was waken up in the middle of the night due to the noise outside through a terribly thin wall. For the price I paid, I deserve a better one.
