Nice location, lots of Chinese food restaurant, cafe, one big food court nearby. One vegetarian restaurant serving Japanese sushi and normal meal next to the hotel. Newly renovated Sutera mall 150m walking distance from the hotel as well.

The hotel room was uniquely designed. We stayed in the Design Deck Room. Although, a bit small, I think it's perfectly fine for a couple to stay. Staff are pretty friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated well in the middle of many shop houses. There was absolutely no problem finding food given the variety around. A few spas and... More

Have stayed in this hotel a few times. Rooms are small but adequately cozy. Conveniently located next to many eateries and Sutera Mall, which offer even more options in terms of food, entertainment and shopping. Parking lots are aligned along the street in front.

Great accessibility. Friendly staffs. Safe location. And the hotel looks really good. The only setback that i could think of is the size of the room, and the lack of windows in the room. But i think that can be easily resolved should you be willing to pay abit more for a better room. thumbs up! :)
