So disappointed. Checkin process very poor. Food was not up to standard. the room was clean. It was not value for money. The service was average. The highlight was, the hotel is located within walking distance to most restaurants.... and the mall

The stay at this hotel was pleasant and comfortable, centrally located for ease of movement. We were able to walk to the Gateway Mall in relative safety, a short 10 minute leisurely walk will get you to the mall.
