The hotel is in the good location with ease of convenience to the MRT station and shopping malls. There are a number of restaurants to choose from within walking distance from the hotel. However, there are room for improvement for the room quality.

This is not a large scale of hotel like the Novotel in Europe. But, the hygiene level is quite good. It need to walk for 10-15 minutes from the metro. The price is reasonable when compare with the same level of hotel. The mini-bar stuff are free of charge.

The walls in this hotel are paper thin, and we could hear people watching TV and a baby crying in the next room. There was also some odd creaking noises coming from the building structure. The beds are hard, and in fact are only box springs with thin mattress covers. There are NO English movie or entertainment channels. At $100+... More

The beds in this hotel are very typical China style super hard beds. The reason I choose to pay the higher prices and stay in an international hotel chain is to avoid such beds. Accor hotels have never failed me in that area.... So it is disappointing, to be charged the price ... For such an uncomfortable bed. The bed... More

Like most hotel receptions, this looked promising. At check in i was told i was given a free upgrade. Bonus! My room, a suite comprised of the bedroom, and another room, a kind of lounge/office area. The layout of the room meant this additional room was like some after thought. What got me most was the smell of damp in... More
