Stayed for 3 nights in the cozy studio room, new modern renovation and I recon it's good value for the money, good location.. They don't clean your room every day unless you staying up to 7 nights then they will clean it on the 7th day. Small fee apply for extra towels..

The hotel was well secured with high technology after hours service. It was quiet a challenge for us first timers but it all boils down to reading the instructions for late check ins after reception hours via email to be able to access the hotel. I suggest this instructions should also be sent via SMS as sometimes access to emails...

I want to start with saying the receptionist was super lovely and friendly. On arrival we noticed how un clean our room was, the phone was covered in dust, the shower had hair through it, as did the micro wave and there was a plane ticket in the drawer left behind from a gentleman a week ago.
