The beds very comfortable and had a very sound sleep. Its right on the Mall road and right next to the lift. They have their own lift... More

I would have rated this an excellent experience had the staff been a little polite and adjustable. They appear to be acting as property dealers rather than some hospitality staff. You do not visit these places to understand the terms and conditions. You need some warmth in interaction that I definitely kept searching for.

Stayed here on Nov 19-21. Room has great view, love the window and the balcony. Chinese food was delicious. Breakfast was great too. The dining hall is very hear warming. The lift within the hotel is really convenient, no need to get in line for the other lift to the mall.

Nice clean and upmarket place to stay with comfy beds, which was soo good after sleeping on some very hard beds. Easy access to the shopping mall from lift within hotel. Rooftop terrace for sitting out on during the day. Head breakfast there but ate out all other times as the food wasn't great.

Stayed from 24 to 26 Oct. 2015. Great stay. Very close to the famous mall road of ridge. Close to public lift. Food is just OK. If having kids then its convenient but its costly. Considering the price, hotel management is advice to consider providing DTH instead of cable. Cable did not work during entire stay. Little bit disappointed. Over... More
