It's a wonderful place, the owner and his wife are really nice and they helped me a lot. The location is great near the subways station and there is a lot of restaurant and coffee shops. The rooms are good. Thanks MJ & Geoffrey.

Stayed there for 6 days with my wife. Room was nice and the staff were friendly although some of them cannot speak English. With free breakfast when you stay, just ask them or go to level 1 by 7:30am. Will come back again for sure
