We stayed at the last floor (3rd) in a Double Private Ensuite, which has its own bathroom (no elevator). The location is great because the subway and train entrance are on the other side of the road, however that's a minus as well because the sound of the trains is like someone is sharpening a knife on a grinding stone the entire night, but you get used to it (there are free ear plugs at the reception!). The room has a skylight which, unfortunately, lets all the cold in. The only way to change the intensity of the rooms AC is to ask the reception to change it (there is no phone in the room). Bed is comfortable.
Common areas are good, nice couches and TV's, there's also a ping pong table. In the lower living room there is a safe room still with the huge door (like a bank) but it's now a room with couches and lots of pillows, the TV is strategically positioned so you can watch it from the safe room.
The hotel seemed packed so my suggestion to the hotel is that they use their money to get double windows so the noise won't come inside...
