More like rented apartments than a hotel. Minimal room facilities. Rooms never cleaned over 3 nights/days, even the trash can was not emptied! Should not market itself as a hotel when it is just like a rented apartment block. Disappointing.

Very helpful, friendly lady on front desk. Good location. Good facilities. Access and security of building was easy to use. Dumpling restaurant next to hotel was a great spot for a delightful, enjoyable dinner.
