Staff is friendly but doesnt seems to understand English. Rooms are very old and not clean. Below expectation. Sound proof very bad, can hear guest/staff talking loudly outside. Location is good, just opposite of Waterfront area where nightlife and food is there.

Basic facility. Overall average for the budget. Starbucks opposite. Air con is weak. Asked for no smoking room, but assigned a room but stinks. Noisy room with very poor sound proofing. Affected my sleep before the marathon race.

The was some type of black specs scattered all over the bed, the entire room was dusty, the toilet was not cleaned properly, and the shower floor had a ton of cleaning agent... More

However, this time when we came back to this hotel, we find that it's not been well maintaned. As we stepped into the elevator, ciggarete smoke smell is present. The room we were given at Level 5 also has... More

For the price we paid this hotel was fine. It was basic, a bit tired, the room smelt of stale smoke and didn't have a window but it was very cheap. It's in a good central location, staff were friendly so overall it's average.
