Stayed for 1 night with a group of friends. The location of the hotel is great as it is only a short walk to Nagoya Hill Mall. The surrounding area is very lively as you are not short of food & entertainment. The room in general was functional and the facilities adequate. Love the mirror facing the bed. My only... More

I stayed in the Executive Suite room, and to my opinion, everything looked okay. I had and LCD TV by the bed, and an old one in the living room (yup, there are 2 TVs). The carpet was new, also some of the furniture. The bed was okay, but the pillow was superb. When I come down to the restaurant... More

I had a renovated room, so carpet, furnishings look ok (cheap, but ok). Can still see remnants of old days, e.g. wash basin, basin counter, toilet bowl and bathtub. There is a KTV on 4th floor, better to avoid rooms where you can hear the loud singing. No issue with cleanliness, although there is a distinct cheap perfume smell in... More

I first booked in another hotel but after visiting the room and checking the surrounding I decided to move closer to Nagoya hill and checked in this hotel. Coming out from a less pleasant place, the hotel seems much better, more welcoming and better located. The hotel is under refurbishment (old but clean rooms, lobby, bathroom etc...) and there where... More

We checked in around 3pm. At first, everything seems fine, lobby was nice and all. But to my surprise, the hotel itself smells of staled cigarettes the moment we reached the elevator. The stench was pretty foul. The ventilation was bad & the bedsheet has stains.Then on our last day, we checked out and made our payment. The change was... More

As we have checked in late night (around 10-11 pm) we didn't have much choice.This hotel got very good reviews here that's why we stayed there.To my horror when we got there, it's so old! It smells of of mildew & stale cigarette smoke-must be the curtains and the carpeting. We were tired and just ordered room service-the food must... More
