“Okay but in a good central location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

As you can probably tell from the address, this hotel covers a couple of floors of very busy commercial building. I found the place without too much hassle coming from Ximen MRT station but once I got there, I was knocked out by the sewer-ish smell of the reception area. Fortunately the smell didn't extend to my room which smelt merely stale as it had no windows and no obvious means of being aired.
The room itself was fine. The bathroom and bed were immaculate but I wasn't so convinced by the carpet.
Breakfast was a voucher I didn't use for the Mos Burger downstairs but this wasn't a problem as the hotel is just around the corner from the main pedestrian shopping street.

I'm not sure I'd deliberately choose to stay here again if I had other options available but it was fine.
