My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Prior to selecting this hotel we read several reviews regarding this hotel of which there were none up to date.
We decided to select this hotel and take the chance. I will say that I was pleasently surprised. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and well kept. It's decor is a reminder of days gone by, but all of it is new and in good condition.
We stayed in one of their suite rooms, which was large and had a comfortable bed.
The one draw back that we didn't care for too much was that the air conditioner unit was right beside the bed, which when running would blow cold air directly on the person sleeping on that side of the bed, it would have been better to place the unit somewhere else in the room or at least higher up.
The hotel internet service is a little slow.
There is only one elevator in the hotel which means that there is sometimes a short wait, not all that long. I enjoyed the elevator as it's one of the nostalgic pieces of equipment with the accordian gate style door.
The hotel is about a 15 minute drive by taxi to the Mall of Asia, so not all that close. The traffic can be a little busy when trying to leave the hotel so try to avoid rush hour times when leaving the hotel. The US Embassy is within walking distance of the hotel.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and will be coming back on future visits.
