It was just a night's trip but it was a good stay. The twin bed room I took was spacious. I like the fact that there is a sofa in the room. The bathroom was clean and also spacious. A plus point for a stay here is it's just next door to Imago Mall where you can get almost anything... More

Centralized location at a slightly elevated price. Close to several malls, waterfront and all within 10mins walking distance. No breakfast though, and the rooms are just on the average side. Nothing fancy but needs improvements and an overhaul. However, Breakfast is just around the corner with plenty of eateries. Night fall, the place is quiet and by 8pm all eateries... More

Tiles use in toilet /shower room is extremely Slippery. The owner should not use this type of tiles which is so dangerous for every one expecially the children and the elderly. Tiles are extremely smooth surface which normally use for house living and dining room. When it get wet, it is extremely Slippery! ! Be caution.

It's kind of convenient because it's just next to Imago. Do not expect much for this price. Overall the girls at Front counter were very very very rude. They don't know how to say thank you and never smile as if I owe them money. I have problem in using their Wi-Fi with my phone on the second day but... More

Stayed there for chinese new year 2016, certainly a clean and relaxing hotel. Situated next to the imago mall making shopping easier, it is also located near the breach front. Facilities are definitely good and the toilet is huge!

Location wise is good. The hotel is just beside Imago Shopping Mall. Its actually a combination of few shoplot units. No lift or escalator at the lobby. Lift is available just beside the main entrance and you need to climb for 1/2 storey of staircases before reaching the lift. Cleanliness of the room should be improved. Toilet bowl was dirty...
