Nice hotel, good location (very near to shops, restaurants, major attractions), good size room and bathroom, however the bed (which was comfortable) sits on a stone platform some 30/35 cms above the floor. The easiest way into the bed is from the end rather than from the sides. At night, when sleeping if you need to go to the bathroom, you better remember that you are not at floor level and must be careful not to trip and fall because of the 2 level set up. The night tables, lamps and fan control are not within reach once you are in bed. You need to get out of bed to turn them on/off. The bedroom set up is good example of "design and originality" prevailing over comfort and practicality.
The hotel provided a complementary small plate with fruit which was replenished daily.
Good selection of international channel and good WiFI connection in the room. There is a goo size safe and big flat screen TV in room too
Breakfast buffet was good with Western and Asian choices.
The staff in the hotel was a mixed bag. some attentive and helpful, others showing straight faces not even offering a greeting or a smile.
Overall a good hotel, however because of the two levels bedroom set up I am not sure I would stay there again,
