it's true the staff was pretty cold & basically ignored me when i was next in-line to check in, as if they didn't want to be bothered. i'm not even that friendly, so my standards of friendliness are not very high.
BUT the location was great. close to the most useful subway line & the central tourist areas. the room was really beautiful & spacious & a great price. the bathroom was huge, had a separate bath & shower.
i found it annoying that there was no WIFI, only wired internet -- normally not a problem, since i travel with my own long ethernet cable -- but their short ethernet cable is attached to the wall & cannot be unplugged. so you can only use internet at the desk, and only with an ethernet-enabled laptop. if you have an ipad or something, forget it. also the power plug by the bed didn't work. air conditioner was good but didn't seem to turn off when it got cold. i would prefer it be cold than hot though. shower temperature was difficult to adjust -- either or hot or cold, not much in between.
