The photo shown in AGODA is not the one of the hotel, it is a very small boutique hotel and not a resort as displayed in AGODA website. It is average, but expensive for what was offered. the hotel is a simple lodging, no breakfast, no gym and even a decent lounge area, wifi tend to broke down, electricity broke... More

Nearby we can have Coffee Shop, Secret Recipe , Guardian Pharmacy, Watson and bank.Strong water for shower. The WIFI is only available in lobby and the speed is not that good. The room is small but clean and tidy. Comparing to how much extra... More

Pros: 1. Strategic location. City attractions are within walking distance. 2. Decent room and comfortable beds. Cons: 1. Slow service. Have to wait for 1 hour before our room was ready. 2. Not sound proof. You can hear all the activities outside at the corridor.

Stayed there in December and we can hear kids crying, running from room to room and door banging, which is annoying. However the bed is surprising comfortable. The bathroom hardware is rather "shaky" like turning on the taps, while the... More

Yup! The location is right smack in front of the waterfront. There's a Starbuck right infront of the lobby. A lot of shopping nearby too. Its a simple hotel... what would you expect from a (quite) cheap hotel. At least there's free wifi... I got a room with the view of the waterfront... nice! Try to avoid the rooms without... More
