Good value and location but service was just meh
Service was just so so not very welcoming. Location is great. Great value. Renovated rooms brightly lighted but the bathtub/shower combi looks old and stained with the rubbermaid anti slip mat is very old. Drainage system is slow and surprisingly they do not provide toothbrush and toothpaste of all toiletries that they have. Other than the amenities, the hotel interior and rooms are very comfortable to stay in.

Noisy Guest Next Door
The suite that was given was comfortable and clean and the staff were attentive and helpful to cater to my needs. However, the guest staying next door with family was too noisy and the noise level at 3am is unbearable and is affecting the sleep quality. Rooms should be refurbished with better sound proof features or the staff should do more rounds patrolling to ensure noise level are being kept low.

Terrible experience
I requested for a non-smoking room and was told that the room is non-smoking. Sadly, the room has terrible cigaratte smell. When I requested to change the room, the reception lied that the hotel was fully booked and refused to change. Upon complaining to the manager, I only managed to change to another room.
