The room is old. Air-con took a long while to cool. the only good thing is the bathroom. Shower & Basin taps looks clean and sparkling. Lunch and breakfast are terrible with little selection. Conference room is a walk from the hotel lobby(thru the carpark). Though it says free wifi, it doesn't work unless you get the wifi password from... More

Had some minor problems during check in. Despite booking for non smoking room, we were almost given a room on smoking floor. Lucky I checked. I had a business suite king facing the city view- which is more like facing a housing construction. At night, it was noisy with sound of traffic. Room smelled musty and I found a dead... More
