Clean, but not helpful staff.

clean,air conditioned,convenient location
the wifi was broken down for whole my stay (3days).they kept extending the day it's fixed. and one old lady at the reception was unhelpful. It's good for a short stay, sometimes can be noisy.

Mixed feelings

location and 30 mins free internet
i booked an ensuite double, but my booking got messed up so ended up with a 4 girl door room. it was fine because kelly at reception was so nice about the mix up. the bathroom was large and we received 30 mins free internet. only bad thing about the room was there was no windows for natural sunlight. in terms of customer service: i had a really hard time dealing with a lady who has obviously been there too long and doesn't know the meaning of customer service. she was not helpful and rude when i called multiple times to inquiry about the status of my booking. if kelly didn't save the experience upon check-in i would never go back here again.
