We came in early before the check in time, they help us right away, the front desk is very helpful, with a nice welcome drink. We checked in right away. Our room has a good size and modern. The wi-fi is great even though we are on the 13th floor the signal is very good. The location is good too, close to restaurants and a pharmacy/convenient store.
Now the bad part, I really hate the way they arrange the whole bathroom. The shower doesn't have a privacy, I am lucky that I am traveling with my husband on a business trip because if you are traveling with somebody else this room will not work for you. The shower is enclosed on a glass, no door, the only cover that you have is a blinds on the other side. If you have to open the door to get something or if somebody knocks they will see the person taking the shower. Also, I have to call several times to request an iron. We have to go on a business meeting, we have to leave without ironing our clothes hoping people will not notice it because the iron never came. I requested this several times, the last time I have to call twice or three times before they show up.
Overall this is a nice place to stay, if you are coming with a family or friends I guess you have to request a room that has a private bathroom. The staff is great beside the iron problem.
