A very bad choice
This hotel gave us very bad experiences. We booked 3 different rooms for a total stay of 9 nights and their services were just terrible. First, our breakfast was told to serve at the 9th Floor then, at the morning, we had to walk to another hotel for our breakfast, not mention that we had an elder in our group. Second, the attitude of the staff, especially the security man, was very bad. He shouted at us as if he was the boss of the hotel. I asked to meet the manager to complain about that but the receptionist kept stalling me and told me to wait for a very long time. So i decided to post it here, after my stay, for everyone who care, know the situation. Third, the rooms were all very old and had an uncomfortable smell, furniture was the same to the room condition. That was not acceptable for a Three Star Hotel. Fourth, this is just an overpriced hotel. So this is the last time we stay in this hotel.

Hotel review
Spacious, bed comfortable, doormen was attentive
Below average. The hotel smelt of cigarette smoke. There was no complimentary tea/coffee but there was a kettle! Breakfast was at another hotel across the road. There was smoking in the lobby. Everywhere except for the lobby was hot and had a musky smell. I will not return or recommend this place.

Horrible Hotel!
This is the first hotel that there is no safety box in some room. Mine happens to be such a unit! I had to pay 40USD for that privilege.
