I spent 2 nights at the hotel. Overall the room is spacious enough for 2 adults and child. Bed and pillows are comfy and has clean towels and sheets.
Toilet show bad sign of lacking in housekeeping. For a hotel which is relatively new, ugly stains were found in the shower area as well as next to the toilet bowl wall (which I've no idea what kind of stain is that)
Toiletries were very basic. I had expected something better from a International hotel chain and/or a 4* hotel.
Wall between rooms seems to be very thin as I could sometimes hear my neighbour talking. Otherwise, my neighbour may be a loud mouth.
The hotel also has a spa, which I did not try. But you could get cheaper ones outside. Opp the hotel has massage parlour callled "6 stars". However a local friend who have tried their service do not recommend it.
Hotel breakfast is normal. Quality of food is also below expectation as I have earlier heard good comments on their food. But having compare the food quality and room quality with I Hotel, I think I rather go for I Hotel. The price factor is slightly higher, but the location is much better (5 mins walk to Nagoya Hill Mall). At Nagoya area, you can watch movie, karaoke, massage, arcade and shopping. Whereas at Swiss-belhotel is more of eat and relax. Hence it depends which is your preferences.
So will I go back to the hotel.again? Yes, but not my first choice.
