4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
This was a sufficient property. The rooms were gorgeous especially the premium rooms. The staff was excellent at helping with things. It was great for the price but a few things to consider. First the hot tub isnt great the deck area is nice but you have to pay to use the hot tub and you can here the noise from the loudspeaker from the KFC next door. I didn’t get a chance to use the city bus which would’ve been a cheaper alternative to the taxi I had to take to get to my airport shuttle because the city buses don’t operate until 9:50am and I left early and arrived late. The tours the hotel offered were great I went with East West and they picked me up and dropped me off it was great. However if you don’t have a car it’s an added cost to find what you really want to do and you are a bit confined to the space around you. That’s fine for some but not for others. The KFC next door is quite convienent though except for the noise at the hot tub. If the hot tub is important to you I wouldn’t recommend it looks nice but you can hear all the cars from the highway and stuff.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Could have been better
The room was dirty with dead insects laying around the floor. And there was a swage smell in the bathroom when I used water tap or shower. The bed linen could have been better, they felt very old and were not comfortable. Besides, there was no "air conditioning" as suggested at the booking page, and certainly not "sound proofing" either. The area near the hotel was nice (except the traffic noise), there were many fast food restaurants, a nice bakery, and a supermarket all within walking distance.

The room was large and really clean. The hotel was decorated in cool antiques and had a fun ambiance. The room and hotel were quiet and in a good location. Walking distance to KFC, Subway, grocery store and a convenience store.
