I asked to move to a quieter one and was allocated a windowless room! I just took it as I was tired but it wasn't much quieter as there were kids... More

But then again, once you get inside the hotel it starts to get better! The hotel lobby is decent enough and well-designed, receptionists are very friendly and accommodating, the lift... More

We liked the hotel and the staff was helpful and friendly. it is conveniently located in China town. Be careful fi you opt for a prepaid cab from the airport as the cab driver left us on the road saying the hotel was inside chinatown and the cab could not go there.

The location is in the middle of chinatown.Very crowded and noisy. Didnt like the service and rooms.But if you are under low budget and want to spend more time in sight-seeing and shopping then definitely recommended.

The room was absolutely disgusting. It looked like there was dried vomit on the carpet, (see uploaded photo) the sink,bath and shower were that filthy we didn't dare to use them and the naff wallpaper was covered with nicotine stains. Not only did it look like the room design hadn't been updated in a very long time, it was as... More
