I stayed in this hotel for two nights for a business purpose. The advantage of it was its location that was near train station and conference center, and they were connected by a covered bridge, so it was convenient for us to walk back and forth. What made it more convenient was the train station that had various options for foods and had grocery stores. The hotel was also only 10-15 minutes walk from the center of the city.
The interior of the hotel in general was an old style with a huge lobby. My room was sizable with a beautiful view of the city from 27th floor. Most of its amenities worked well with the exception of hot water for shower that was set at 40 degree Celcius; it could not be reduced. It was rather hot for me. Another thing was I requested for a non smoking room but my room smelled smoke.
The varieties of the foods for breakfast were rather limited, and the taste was mediocre at best. I was invited for a gala dinner at Royal Hall. The foods there were much better. Maybe because it was a special event.
If you are looking for a hotel with strategic location, this may be the one. But if you are looking for an additional value, you may need to consider other options.
