Nicely appointed with a great bathroom (nice bathtub, big sink, fluffy towels, shelves to put your things, lights in different places, all clean and new), a balcony and changing area. There are a tea kettle, fridge, safe, mosquito netting, and small bottle of water every day. Part of the corridor space is open-air so the hotel is fresh and feels... More

My colleague and I stayed at Hotel Emerald last month. What I didn't realise is that the hotel is on the 6th and 7th floor of an office block. Not ideal in terms of security, but also not terrible. I saw comments on noise, but I didn't notice anything. Positive: The rooms were nice and clean, the furniture was new,... More

Yeah, quite a difficult place to review. Guess I can say, you need to know what you are there for if you choose to stay there. The place is located in a noisy surrounding and even the efforts taken to put people in the "quieter" rooms seems to bear little effort. However, I could still sleep through the noise, so... More

The Hotel is a regular Business class hotel located in a good location. The rooms and Facilities are good. The Staff were also good. Room that I stayed had a lot of noise coming from outside and hence could not get a good sleep. Over all an good place for a short stay.

Very clean hotel, well maintained, compared to ones we saw of similar price range before booking. Hotel is situated on the 6th to 8th floor (last two floors) of a commercial... More

- Very Friendly and Welcoming Staff - Newly Built Rooms - Very Close to two Mega Malls - Not too much variety for Breakfast but made-to-order dishes available on request. - Very Busy and Noisy Surrounding. If staying on weekend, loud music from neighboring clubs/ pubs may play till late night - Hotel on 6th Floor of a Commercial Complex
