The location of this hotel can't be complained.
2 minutes walk from the metro and bus stops are nearby.
It is close to the shopping area and restaurants, the tourism office is just at the corner.
Staffs were very nice and helpful.
The room itself is quite clean, the bathroom is a bit small but OK.
The big let down is that my room had strong cigarette smell.
The lady at the reception did mention that this is a non-smoking hotel, so I wonder where the smell came from and didn't the cleaner noticed about it?
Since I only stayed for a night, I didn't ask for room change which I regretted about it later the night.
The smell persisted although I opened the window for a long while and I almost couldn't stand it.
The other thing to be mentioned is, the lift in this hotel is very small and old style.
I think it can only fit one person and maybe one baggage at any one time.
So I only used the lift once and used the stair all other times (my room was at 4th floor).
The room lighting is a bit dark and the air conditioner didn't work! Lucky that it was autumn so the temperature was not so bad.
Price was reasonable.
Will I go back again? If the room smells fresh and the air conditioner works well then yes :)
