This is a hotel with nice and modern internal decor. You can tell from the point of entry that this hotel targets mainly business travelers. They have several "meeting rooms" right at the lobby for use.
Checking in and out were generally smooth. However, I was kinda pissed when my card key was deactivated during the last two nights in a row. I was annoyed on one night when I went down to get my keys replaced, went up to find that it was still not working and had to wait for another set to be delivered.
Room was comfortable generally, though the toilet was a little cramp. Toiletries were plenty but I did not dare use the shower cream and shampoo as the bottles looked old and definitely "recycled". I am ok with recycling, don't be mistaken, but at least the bottles should be kept in better condition. The caps were cracked and bottles felt "oily".
Housekeeping was generally ok, though I had hope that they did not remove my key after completing their task. There was a good reason why I prefer keeping my room "ON" and further, the team should not be removing my key without informing me.
Room service was alright, not too bad. Requests for more bottled drinks were met promptly.
Breakfast at the one-cafe was alright, though I must comment that the variety was disappointing. Every morning, my breakfast was standard - Mushroom, some rice, grilled tomatoes, chunks of fried potatoes, one chocolate donut, fruits. Basically that's it. Imagine eating the same food for breakfast throughout 6 days! Food quality was ok but seriously, the lack of variety needs to be addressed. I only got to try some steam fish on my last day of stay.
I had settled my lunch and dinner in shopping malls instead as the prices are somewhat pricey in my opinion.
Staff serving in the restaurant were helpful and friendly. One suggestion though, please do replenish the utensils of customers if you intend to clear it along with the plates. It is a buffet breakfast, and your customers will be going for more than one serving.
Valet staff at the car porch was very efficient and helpful.
There was an evening when one of the rooms on my level had a gathering. Apparently, these people were smoking in the room when the level is strictly for non smoking. The guests left the room opened and you could evidently smell their cigars at that level.
Gym was ok, the staff requires you to sign an indemnity form everytime you visit the gym (which I feel was a waste of paper). The gym is huge though and generally well equipped.
Overall, the stay was alright and acceptable. I would consider coming back to this hotel again in the near future, but hopefully the breakfast variety would improve.
