My (young adult) daughter and I stayed at this lovely hotel/appartment for two nights in May 2014. First things first, make sure you get off at the right subway stop! This is a new hotel and most taxi drivers and information kiosks have no idea where it is. Part of the problem is that it is known under "Fraser Modena" and it is a new location. Take the subway Line 7 to Langao Road and follow the escalator to the street level. It is literally 10 steps away if you come out the right doors. There is a Starbucks right next door...
The staff at the front desk are very friendly and speak fluent English. The check in was smooth and quick. My reservation included a very nice buffet breakfast served on the 2nd. floor each morning from 7-10 a.m. Make sure you ask for your eggs as they are brought cooked to order fresh from the kitchen. There is also an outside seating area at the restaurant. Very nice on a spring day. There is a laundromat on the 2nd. floor which costs a few bucks, but detergent is provided free of charge at the front desk. We used the machines without any issues.
The room was on 2 levels and well furnished with 2 flat screens and a well stocked kitchen (no food) for preparing basic meals. The upper level had a Queen sized bed and a TV with a nice view from the 21st. floor balcony. the 2nd. bedroom on the main level had a twin bed. The only drawback to this room layout is that the washroom is attached to the kitchen. The only thing separating someone on the toilet and someone cooking is a sliding galss door. Probably not for the queasy folks...
there is a small underground mall with a McDonalds and a Subway as well as a full food court next door. There is also a Lotus Grocery store located underground next door. Very nice selection of just about anything you may desire.
The location isn't perfect, but right on the subway so really not far from anything. I would highly recommend a stay here!
