Amazing heritage building. Nice and bright, well maintained, clean and friendly staff. This hotel is within a few minutes walk of everything including the market, many food outlets and the famous street art murals. The only problems we had was the fact that the door card access was not working for anyone's doors. This was ok though because the friendly... More

The hotel location is very good. Very near to famous landmarks and lots of food and drinks variety around the area. Everywhere is within walking distance. The hotel room is clean and the shared bathroom is also clean and user friendly. However, due to the structure of the hotel (ie wood panel floorboards, it is very noisy when people walk... More

The room is very comfortable and clean to stay but inside is lacking plugs to charge phones. The staffs are very helpful and friendly. Shared bathrooms are clean than expected but still have room for improvements.

Breakfast not included but no shortage of opportunities close by. Right in the middle of everything eat at little India or on Leith Street. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. No complaints for the price

Nice white and gold interior, only thing I didn't like was having to take off my shoes off each time I went up the stairs and share a bathroom but it was clean Room was small but clean enough, white sheets. Walls seem quite thin so can hear voices in adjoiningrooms. Recently refurbished though and once was quite a relic... More

One important note about this hotel -- it's semi-outdoor. The lobby opens up to the outdoors and all rooms open up to a semi-outdoor hallway. In a place with constant equatorial heat and humidity, this was a very bad design choice. I arrived at the hotel to check-in during the hottest part of the day. This made the 15-minute wait... More

Simple hotel just off a busy road. Lots of food options nearby, just around the corner from an amazing dim-sum breakfast shop. Clean and large rooms with nice shared facilities. Arrived much earlier than expected and receptionists were very accommodating. Would return.
