This is my second stay and both times I have found the service and facilities to be really good. As a short stopover hotel it has plenty of facilities; comfortable rooms, pool, in house restaurants and is situated in a great area for shopping and the wonderful China Town eateries.

Also there is a HopOnHopOff bus station just behind the hotel near the monorail station just about 10 minutes walk from hotel. This is the only place I...
