Check In was smooth and efficient. The wi-fi service in the room is particularly great. Despite our room being on a smoking floor, the room is smoke-smell free. Our requests were also attended to immediately, and we have attendants who helped us with the elevator and the front door almost every time.
Location of the hotel was a little hard to find. Can be a drag on your first day, especially when you're lugging your baggage along.
The I'm Ok-with-it-not-sure-about-other-people:
The room is quite small, with just enough space to move from one end to another. In fact, once we requested iron and ironing board to be brought in, we're pretty much climbing on our beds to get to the other side of the room. The beds only barely fit my frame (I'm 5'4").
My friend and I are medium-built Asians, so these arrangements doesn't bother us. But for fellow travellers who are on the tall side, this might be a little too snug for your taste. Also, those traveling with children might want to consider asking for two rooms, just for the breathing space.
For me, it was good. A decent stay for people who spend most of their time outside.
