plus decent restaurants (Japanese) in case you get tired of local food.... my package includes buffett breakfast, that is decent n within expectation supermarket is only 1 block away, so you can buy your own beer internet connection - would suggest you to use wifi instead. reasonable speed.

Friendly staff, clean rooms and accessible to huge shopping centre with good choices of restaurants around the blocks. Nice swimming pool for some great. Exercise. The sauna room needs more lightings as it was pitch dark when we want to use it. All in all it's a money worthwhile experience to stayin this Hotel. Highly recommended.
