The hotel location is convenient, but the signage is small, so it was a little hard to find at first. Reception is not on the first floor, but you have to take a lift to the 5th floor. The rooms are very nice and new! We booked a junior suite, but was given a double room on the first night, with the promise of a free upgrade to a new deluxe suite with jacuzzi on the 2nd and 3rd nights. The double room has a nice decor, and unique doors to the bathroom and toilet, which are separate. The problem with this double room is that the bathroom drainage was bad, such that water flowed out into the room after a bath. In addition, the bathroom has a frosted glass screen which is visible from the bed area, and the image is quite clear from outside in! Luckily I was with my husband, so it was ok...otherwise may be awkward if not travelling as a couple.
We changed to the newly opened deluxe suite on the 5th floor on the 2nd day, and it was very nice! Nice decor, with jacuzzi and big bathroom. We were told we are the 2nd guests staying in this room, but because it is so new, the wifi is not available yet. The toilet was located at opposite ends of the room with the bathroom, and this was slightly inconvenient as the toilet did not have a tap. This means that after using the toilet, you have to walked out to the other end where the tap was (in the bathroom).
There is a big balcony that you can walk out too from the room, but there is not much use for it since there are no table and chairs outside. There was also not much of a view, other than the surrounding buildings. One flaw is that there was limited support at night. We came back at night ome day and realised that all the bath towels were not replaced, and when we tried to call room service, no one answered. Since our room was near the reception, we walked out to check but no one was there. Finally, after calling a few more times, we finally got someone to send us new towels.
