It's kind of convenient because it's just next to Imago. Do not expect much for this price. Overall the girls at Front counter were very very very rude. They don't know how to say thank you and never smile as if I owe them money. I have problem in using their Wi-Fi with my phone on the second day but... More

The TV shows menu is also not something i should shout about... But if you are looking just for a simple & affordable short stay it should be fine omitting the pest but... More

Stayed there for chinese new year 2016, certainly a clean and relaxing hotel. Situated next to the imago mall making shopping easier, it is also located near the breach front. Facilities are definitely good and the toilet is huge!

Location wise is good. The hotel is just beside Imago Shopping Mall. Its actually a combination of few shoplot units. No lift or escalator at the lobby. Lift is available just beside the main entrance and you need to climb for 1/2 storey of staircases before reaching the lift. Cleanliness of the room should be improved. Toilet bowl was dirty...

So far in all my stays there, haven't encountered any fowl smells, in the room or the corridor. Agree that it is a bit troublesome to access the lift to get to the... More

The hotel is strategically located near shopping and business centers. The staff were generally nice and accommodating. The room was spacious and generally clean but smell of smoke in the hallway is evident. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was spacious. The only main complaint is that access to the rooms is located outside the lobby, beside the building, and there were... More
