Wanted to like this hotel very much like someone else was saying. The train didn't disturb our sleep as the bed was very comfortable.
We were not impressed that: 1) Considering the size of the room we stayed (350 sq/ft), there was no table to sit inside, 2) the hair dryer didn't work, 3) the entry door to the 3rd floor needed to get fixed -- it didn't close properly, 4) there was no public area to hang out (the reception area is tiny), 5) the breakfast was ok (from all the reviews I've read, I thought it'd be really really awesome, but it was ok. Good food, but nothing exceptional.) 6) Attention to detail missing -- all the cables for the TV and internet were visible, disturbing the room view 7) No restaurants close by except for a Chinese restaurant which was closed on the night we wanted to try... Lastly although the train didn't disturb our sleep, it was not as relaxing as we had wanted the stay to be.
Basically, we had high expectation about this place from all the reviews, and the hotel experience we had didn't meet that.
We really enjoyed the jacuzzi and people were nice. I don't think we'll be coming back, however.
