This is a beautiful property, smack in the heart of Chinatown, about a block away from the Chinatown metro. Great, convenient location.
The staff are friendly here, and extremely helpful - especially Leong. We checked out on Sunday by Noon, and left our bags at the reception desk. When we returned to the hotel to collect our bags and proceed to the airport, the hotel staff gave my spouse his passport, which we forgot to take out of the safe. For that, alone, this hotel is worth it.
The price for rooms is very reasonable. The rooms are very small, though boast a modern, aesthetically-pleasing decor. I just worry about safety - knocking my head on the side of the desk, etc. We stayed in a double room, and there was hardly any space between the foot of the bed and the dresser. Very cramped for two people, but manageable for a night.
The main drawback of this hotel, in my view, is that it's not so quiet. Our room had a window facing out to the street. Despite being closed, sound carried easily through the cracks and molding, and made it difficult to sleep. We could hear people talking on the street below at night; we could hear loud music in the morning. My mother stayed down the hall in a room without windows, which we thought would be comparatively quieter, but she told us that she was awakened in the middle of the night by a guest who was having an argument with his partner in the room adjacent to hers.
