What stands out the most in San Want Residences is the staff, with exception of temp help during breakfast. The genuine attitude and willingness to make guests' stay most enjoyable is the token to success in hotel hospitality.
The 4-star hotel is well maintained, simple but functional. Its location is great, close to MRT with department stores nearby. The breakfast was up to expectation. I stayed at the Studio Suite for 8 days and it is spacious. Daily in-room Nespresso, fruits and snacks were a plus. Its bathroom has roomy shower area plus a deep soaking tub (Japanese style?). I would suggest the in-room furniture to be updated.
There was one drawback during my stay, which was the construction in front of the hotel. Although it's not the fault of hotel, but the noise, air pollution and inconvenience of lodging did affect the comfort of my stay.
Overall, I still give it 5 stars, mainly due to the service level in a 4-star hotel. After construction completes on the main road and furniture updated, it would be a great place to consider.
