Just been there yesterday. We stayed 2 for nights. we usually stay in thistle but gave this a try because of the price & sixe of the room & recommendation by others.
It turned out that this is actually a residential area with a club house facility but they turned it into hotel. So you are sharing the facility with the rest of the resident's.
i booked Business suite but was upgraded to Executive suite due room unavailability. But i cant differentiate between both although frontdesk mentioned executive is better. Many guests upset because check in was late around 4 PM but manager is hands on and very calm + helpful in managing the situation. Lucky i arrived quite late so we just need to wait around an hour but not sure about others. Breakfast is acceptable considering that this is not a 5 star hotel. carpet stained there is not need to have 2 writing desk in one room. prefer to have small dining table.
Facility wise :
Parking : Dissapointed when you have to park in building next door and no elevator.
Gym :Dissapointed. small and no towel. 3 people at one time because there are only 3 key to acticate the the machines there.
Pool : nice and clean. kid's is only 0.5m so quite alright.
Bell boy: they managed to hide from me :) So we need to carry our bags ourselves.
Housekeeping: can evident their proactive, they fix my phone & provide sajdah. Appreciate it !
Garden & playarea for kids: nice but you have to walk to 5 th floor to enjoy it but since i cant go to gym so its fine for me
overall is alright and still recommend to others because it value for money.
