Luckily it was just for one night
Secure parking, location, spacious living area
My family of (including 2 boys aged 12 and 10) were actually staying at Chevron Towers nearby but as it was a special 5 night package and we were in GC for 6 nights we had to find a cheaper place to stay for the extra night being the day we landed from Kuala Lumpur. The additional night in Chevron would have cost a bomb because it was outside the promotion period (being Easter Sunday). We arrived late as we grabbed a bite to eat after an 8 hour flight so we got to the hotel by about 10pm. We were quite bemused and pleased at the same time about the level of trust as there was no one at reception after hours, we simply picked up our keys from a key box. I liked the fact there was temporary parking with a 2 hour limit right by the lobby to allow for unloading the car then there is a secure underground parking accessible using the room key's "dongle." The 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and came with a river view that was promised. However the main complaints we had were: 1/ The kids bedroom was separate, which in our case is fine but I would imagine those with much younger kids would find this a problem. 2/ The aircon remote in the kids room did not work even with a full battery so the room was freezing. We had to open the doors to let in some heat - a real waste of energy. 3/ The general condition of the apartment was very poor. The walls were patchy and dirty and the carpets looked really old. We checked out by 8am the next day and were happy that it was just a transit stop.

Good stay
Washing machine and dryer, cooking stove and utensils availability
It was pleasant but there should be a free wifi in the room.

Disgusting. Disgraceful. Worst place ever.
My stay was disgusting. I have never ever stayed in such a terrible room and that includes many backpacking stays years ago. The list is almost too long to write - when bringing it up with Reception it took a whole page for them to list - and 2 days later I am still appalled by what was presented to me. Worse was some 30 hours after I was promised a call from the Manager I am yet to receive it. Dirty (just about everything!) walls, floors, bathroom (including hairs and squashed bugs!), shower tray, shower curtain, sofa, chair, curtains, blankets, cutlery and crockery. A hole in the bathroom door, cracks in the walls and ceiling. A fan that didn't work as per the switch and was falling out of its ceiling fitting. 3 lamps; 1 worked, 1 didn't and 1 buzzed when it was turned on. No mattress protector and I'm pretty sure bed bugs! I wouldn't stay back here again if they paid me!
