First impression of the room was: For the price it looked good, nice space, neatly organized and clean. but as you dive into the details you can see the age in the bathroom(oxidation) due to age. The sheets weren’t perfectly white and looked abit yellowish as it’s aged. My problem was the sheets had old stains. However I placed a towel over it and surprisingly had a good sleep. The sheets didn’t smell so they did change it and my room was non-smoking which I totally appreciated. Pro: Clean despite old stains and Aging washroom Near to the Nagoya mall and massage and spa places Helpful and friendly staff Plenty of tv channels such as movies and Singapore tv channels Complimentary water Coffee & tea sachets 24hr food room service & a Bubble Tea shop despite the 'cleanliness of sheets' i had a good sleep. Air conditioning was okay. The winner is the staff & service. Cons: Stains on sheets, the management should Ensure stained or fairly old sheets are not used. i even found a short hair under one of the pillows, i almost wanted to leave. I recall there was a disco 'beats' noise that could be heard in the room. I am not sure if its from the KTV on 4th floor, i was located on 2nd floor room. my sink was faulty and the water couldn't drain out from sink

Its the inhouse restaurant which serve Asian food. I ordered Cantonese Seafood Horfun with gravy. The taste is just right but the prawns, squid & chinese mushroom were not fresh as both prawn & squid were tough, not chewy just like the chinese mushroom. But price is reasonable. Quiet place to have a meal & smoke if you like.

Courteous and friendly staff, well-appointed and large rooms. I got a suite, and it was really big, with living room, 2 beds, 2 baths, multiple chairs, 2 desks, really quite a lot of space for a great value. Though a bit dated, the hotel seemed well maintained and clean. There are many places around for shopping, convenience stores, massage, restaurants, etc. It's 4 blocks up the hill to the huge mall area, very convenient. The free breakfast was good and filling, though little Western food, just letting you know in case that's important to you. People smoke a lot in Indonesia, but it didn't seem a problem here. The soap was inadequate, but a quick trip to the mall fixed that problem. WiFi was spotty, and kept dropping connection, but otherwise worked ok. There is a KTV club on the top of the hotel, as well as a massage center. The massages were good, and the garden at the KTV was a nice spot to sit and have a beer, but I'm not into the KTV scene, and it's a weird activity to do when traveling solo, but I did meet a few friends and sing along. I never heard the KTV even on the weekend, except when riding the elevator.

Have been there for more than 2 years. The place has changed. The WiFi was excellent everywhere in the hotel vicinity. The room service is excellent except the bed is not soft enough for me. The bathroom now has walk in shower unlike before. Restaurant now serve only Chinese food. For other cuisines order from room service 24/7. Last but not least no double bed for smoking room.
