I recommend you to stay in the Lobby. The furniture and decor was nice, and looked very expensive. But once you go to your room, it all goes downhill from there. The room itself is big, but with some pretty old stuff. The food was ok, though nothing special. It's located in a more peaceful part of town.

Decent hotel for your stay, nice room with some old furnishing for me. The food is not quite good that match my liking. The location itself is great, near city centre, if you need some quiet cheap hotel around city centre you could try this out, but you could find not far away are better.

The bed sheet was smelly and it only has 2 uncomfortable pillows for a king sized bed. Not recommend to stay in... More

Even though the building is quite new but when you enter the room, it looks old fashion. My friend and I stayed in January, in a room which located in the corner. The style was not catchy. I could not feel the ambience that I stayed in the hotel. Yet, my room faced to the zoo. I could see the... More

I was stayed at this hotel for business trip from 7-10 December 2011 and i have got very unpleasant experience at this hotel. Since the hotel is hiring college students with very limited hospitality skills, the service at this hotel is so bad (front desk, food and beverage, marketing). I have to come down from the 5th floor every time... More
