The hotel is quite worn inside the rooms. Not sure why this qualifies as five star. The furnishings were a bit old. The t.v. isn't even a flat screen, and it's only about a 14" screen. Getting in and out of the bathtub/shower is really dangerous, as it's very high, designed for people well over six feet tall, and it's curved, so you can't even stand straight up in it.
I had one of the very few rooms with a nice view of the train station, but must views look pretty bad. Location is very central to train station, red light district, lots of restaurants nearby. Reasonably quiet.
Staff were all very frirendly. There is free wifi in the lobby. It is priced a lot lower than other so called five star hotels, but it's not five star at all. My room was quite spacious but I doubt I would stay there again until they modernize the rooms.
