Stayed 2nights.

I was supposed to stay a night but I decided to extend one more night and I could stay in the same room for 2nights without moving out. Not only staffs I met was all kind and helpful, but also room condition was pretty satisfying, cozy and neat. :) Mini bar with middle sized pringles and 2 beers are offered with free of charge for superior room.

    Everything was great except that I had to request a menโ€™s shaving razor at the front desk. They gave us one at free of charge. It was just a little cumbersome. The beds were quite comfortable.
