Towels, soap, shampoo, seizures, notebook, pen, laundry bag, etc. provided were in a new and usable condition. Overall, its value... More

This Hotel has three category of rooms and i preferred to stay in a Executive Room which is supposed to be the top one. We preferred it due to the fact that my family was with me. However it was really a horrible experience for us. Rooms are so badly designed and they charge exorbitantly high price. Toilet is highly... More

I was on a business trip. I stayed there for three days. The hotel seems to be a good hotel once. The walls are cracked, rooms not bright enough. The breakfast is OK. Overall not worth the money it takes. The staff are also not so courteous.
