Curbside Impression: Stuck in the 80s.
Check in/out: Staff was courteous and helpful
Room: The minute we walked into our room, it reeked of cigarette smoke. The room was constantly humid and the A/C did nothing but circulated the smoky smell inside the room. Since the humidity was so high, I quickly pulled the bedsheets off to check for bed bugs, fortunately, I found none, but did spot quite a few pubic hair. I felt so uncomfortable, I slept in long sleeves to add another layer between myself and the mattress. The carpet looked and felt dirty. kept our slippers on 24/7.
Bathroom: The worst part of the room was the bathroom, it reeked of mildew. In fact, it smelled like the inside of an old Chinese dim sum restaurant. Black stains along the bath tub and after every shower, no matter how careful you are, we ended up with a big puddle of water in the middle of the bathroom floor.
We hated our bathroom so much that we tried to go as many times as possible when we were in nice shopping malls to avoid using our own.
Breakfast: Good selection of Asian and some western food.
Location: OK if you don't mind a 8-10 mins walk from the nearest subway stop. Easy bus stop out front for connection to all major tourist attractions.
Verdict: Go somewhere else, unless you have no other choice, or until they renovate the property.
