        Worst stay so far”
        Checked in on the 12th September. Was given the white room on the 16th Floor, it was so dirty and had a bad smell. Staff didn't offer to change to room when requested. Towels that were given are dirty and have holes on them. This hotel should just close for good, mainly catered to those daigou from China who are just there for 1 night.

        Convenient location, poor quality of staff and cleanliness”
        -We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights, and found that the staff responsible for cleaning the room frequently omitted the replacement of all items in the room. Eg, the toilet paper in the toilet was totally used up but the staff forgot to replace it. I need to go outside the toilet to get the spare toilet roll. He/she also did not replace the instant coffee that I drunk and the shampoo and conditioner one day. Also, there's no hanger in the toilet to hang the towers. As a result, the staff just put the new towels on the table in the room, and I doubt whether the cleanliness could be maintained. -The communication skills of the reception staff on the day of checkout was poor.I enlisted a staff's assistance to ask if his colleague would be able to find something that we left in our room after checkout. He was not helpful and proactive. I sat down to wait for his response. He did not get back to me and so I asked again after a while. He did not seem to understand more complicated English. I gave up.

        Ok hotel, but not on an international standard”
        We stayed three nights at this hotel and the first thing we notice is that the level of english is not what it should be for an international hotel. But I guess that foreign travellers mostly stay at the international brand hotels and don't look for boutique hotels. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean (although there was some dust on the floor). Housekeeping removed all of our towels after the first night and did not replace them with new ones. The facilities are scarce. We didn't manage to check out the restaurant. Can be improved, but nice concept.

        The design of the room is very user unfriendly. ”
        We chose the deluxe twin room style for a stay of 3 nights, the room is very small and lack of nearly everything a traveller probably need, e.g. there are one and only one mirror in the room which is located in the toilet, my friend and I need to queue up every morning to do the washing and make up. There are no hanger at all in the toilet for you to hang towels and clothes! No tumblers are provided for mouth wash and teeth blushing! The showering head is weak, the shower water is either too cold or too hot, and there are no shower curtain at all which water just go everywhere when you shower! Lastly, there are only a small window in the room which make it so unpleasant to stay!

        The locetionis perfect for people who like to shop till late night, and grab food to eat. However, the service is not good, especially, they turn off the heat every night durng my stay (4 nights), and refuse to provide extra comforters. It is not okay for baby, nor adult with the temperature below zero.
