Location, is good, yes as described. In the shopping district and walking distance to two train stations of different lines. However, the hotel is sure hard to find! I asked a local for directions and omg he was so nice and friendly but he could hardly speak english. We walked about 1 KM with our heavy luggage (so it seemed like 10km) and when we arrived we realised it was the wrong hotel! Took us about an hour to find it and to my dismay we had walked past it way earlier. There are no signs from the main road which direction it's in. We entered from a small road opposite Takashimaya close to a cross junction. Walk about 100 metres straight and we finally got to the hotel.
Check in was fast. But the room is just too small! The toilet reminds me when i'm in an airplane where almost everything is made in plastic. And the free WIFI at the lobby, sometimes it works, but when there is too many people in the lobby all using their phones, don't expect it to work no matter how many times you try. Plus the wifi stops after the check in counter closes after midnight.
But what really pissed me off, is the next morning at 10 am, when i heard knocks on the door, next thing i knew as i got out of the bed is the housekeeping lady in the room. Wow, thats like a big NO-NO. My partner was still in bed. Stunned, we packed our luggage quickly and left.
That was a bad experience maybe for me. I would try somewhere else next time i come though this is value for money.
