We stayed in Elite Room from 31/8 to 7/9 in room 310. WIth window but no view at all but we have nothing to complain because we are out of the room most of the time. Spacious enough for 2 of us plus our luggages on the floor. We find that our stay is very comfortable and pleasant. We had a bathtub and the self service laudry is much appreciated. The room has the sleeping light which is not too bright and we do not have to switch on the bathroom light if we get up in the middle of the nite to use the bathroom. Air con power is good and we still find it cold when we set it to 27 degree celsius. This hotel is not big but really comfortable, pleasant, cosy and clean.
Although we need to leave our keycard everytime we leave the hotel, when we return, the staff all knew which room we stay and they do recognise us. Thanks to Sarah, Iris and some of the guys (sorry cannot remember their names) and the supervisor, Isolde for recommending the pineapple tarts and helping me to order.
Breakfast is adequate and nicely presented. Not much variety but enough for us and there are other breakfast options along the streets.
Round the corner there is 肥前屋 that serves yummylicious eel bento and KaoChi (equivalent to Din Tai Fung, i tink i love this better and value for money). Both places we went twice for our meals. MRT is about 5 mins walk to exit 3 of ZhongShan MRT and is easily accessible to other places by MRT. Ning Xia nite market is about 500m away which is walkable! 新光三月 is just at the ZhongShan MRT station. Try the Melange Cafe, worth the queue!
