We booked 1 economy room and 4 economy deluxe rooms for this trip. The size difference between the 2 was substantial but I believe the economy room was also big enough for the entertainment provided. Location wise is excellent as its in the middle of Fields Avenue. Not a family-friendly hotel due to entertainment around the area. 2 of the guys in our grp complained about a certain smell from the carpet in their rooms but both also don't smoke so for the remaining 3 who did, we couldn't smell anything, so we believe our cigarette smoking masked whatever smell existed. The bed was large and comparable in size to the one at Galaxy Hotel which charges alot more. Rooms were also all on ground floor level which is very convenient. The front desk staff were very helpful also when we made requests and room service was very very fast. None of us got the same problems as some of the other reviewers here about water pressure as we felt it was strong and good enough. Plenty of TV channels to watch and the air con was nice n cold. There was a safe in the room which was helpful for keeping my passport and money. The Wi-Fi signal was jumpy but good enough as my Globe reception was non-existent inside the rooms.
There are only 2 things I would complain about. Firstly, the owner of the restaurant (separate from the hotel) was very rude to us and did not treat us as nicely as he did to the other expats. Perhaps it was because we used one of his tables to wait for a friend in the afternoon without making any orders and he approached us quite rudely and said he needed to run a business. That did not take into account the fact there were plenty of other vacant tables should there be any customers or that he could have asked us nicely to order or vacate his table.
My other complaint would relate to the power supply in the room. The keys to the door need to be plugged-in in order to generate power supply and once you leave the room, you cannot leave your gadgets in the room to charge. I have a tablet, 2 phones and a battery pack and throughout the entire trip my gadgets were never fully charged because I could only charge them when I was at home in the room at night which didn't give me enough time to juice them up.
