Despite concerns raised in the some other reviews, the Eastwest Hotel actually is located in a great neighborhood. You do really have to search for and wander somewhat far afield from the hotel to find the streets of the "red light district" to which some others have alluded. Numerous street cafes and restaurants adorn this fine neighborhood.
It is only five minutes from the train station. Upon check in at the hotel you are given a complimentary transport pass that includes the train to the airport (another 6 minutes away). In addition, it is only steps from the waterfront and less than a 15 minute walk from the old city.
The staff is congenial, offering significant help for a particular travel problem we were facing. The bed was comfortable, the room fairly spacious by European standards, and the shower and bathroom were just wonderful with great amenities.
It is fairly expensive by American standards but well worthy of the high ranking given it by Trip Advisor reviewers.
