“Busy hotel but convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Booked the room online a month before our trip in late March. Upon arrival and after waiting for 20mins to check in, the front desk staff handed us the key to a small room in the older section at the basement with no view / window which was rather disappointing as we required assistance to carry our luggage down the many stairs to the room which was rather inconvenient for my hubby who has knee problem.
Old décor in the room with the very basic facility, quite clean except shower recess still needed some scrubbing. Overall it was alright for 2 nights’ stay as it’s conveniently located close to all amenities including the tourist attractions, shopping centres and subway. Front desk staff was always busy so need to be patient waiting for your turn to be served.

Room Tip: Rooms in building next to the reception are newer.

Stayed here with the bride for two nights on a cruise stopover. Conveniently located for my inevitable night photo walk, the rooms are clean but very dated and they could use new towels.The included breakfast was very good, with both western and Chinese options.

Room Tip: For the sake of your back, request a western style mattress or egg crate addition; my bed could have...

While I agree with other reviews that the location is good, it's not enough for me -- would not stay here again. This is a tired old otel. Stayed for 3 nights as part of a tour package. Room was pretty clean but because it was old gave the impression that it was not. Towels were terrible. Staff was polite but English level was low. I did find b'fast to be OK, no real complaints there.

I would stay elsewhere next time.

This hotel was clean , tidy and well maintained . Free wifi was good but didn't work for Facebook but worked fine on everything else . We always had fresh towels and a clean made bed . Very centrally located . Staff were helpful but maybe a little of a communication gap in languages . The food was good and a large variety on the menu . I would stay here again . No complaints .

This hotel is coasting on ratings from the past. Right now it is a dive with a good location and not much more going for it. We walked away from an $800 prepaid and non-refundable Agoda booking for this hotel after one night and stayed at the Novotel instead. Don't be fooled by the old reviews. It's in a dirty back street, it smells, the rooms are cramped and dirty and there's a noisy construction site right next door.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
