This hotel is somewhat new so the rooms for now are clean, rooms are very big and spacious, bed is comfortable and there are a lot of pillows for the bed. Bathroom is huge and well designed for layout however in such a large shower room you would think that the engineer would find it necessary to add a shelve or two for personal stuff. I had to store my shampoo etc on the floor, but this is a minor issue. There are no drawer in the room there are some cupboards and that about it for storage. The TV has some English channels but not a lot. There is a 7-11 on the first floor which is very convenient as the mini-fridge that was in my room wasn't working but the staff tried to convince me that it was cooling to the 'arctic' degree, which it wasn't.
The pool is not very big it's small but adequate, the gym has free weights, a bench, some machines and a few cardio machines. it works well for a workout and there is also a sauna and non-working steam room.
Within walking distance there are a few Chinese restaurants but they are moderate-expansive in price. But that area is flashy so prices would be higher.
Overall a good hotel, clean large rooms that's comfortable with a Flat screen TV. What's not so great is the service very poor especially when the engineer tried to tell me that the mini-fridge was working, it wasn't. Front desk staff not very friendly but that didn't bother me too much.
The black out drapes could have been a few cm longer in order to perform their function. If you pull on one end the other end opens up, wonder how difficult it would have been to design the drapes a few cm longer. Again a minor issue, I taped it to the wall so that I could keep out the sunlight.
