Pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Although I knew the room had no windows, it didn't feel claustrophobic at all. it was quite cosy in fact. Staff friendly and able. Swimming pool very nice.

I stayed one night for business trip only. Frankly speaking, there is no other restaurants nearby, and the bathroom is relatively old although the living room is relatively big with an "iron" mark on the floor. The breakfast is just a simple chinese and western breakfast / buffet.
