A very good service but have to upgrade cardio gym to full gym.
The cleanliness, location are very good. But however some of the staff should know how to smile and be pleasant to everyone. The gym equipment is just only for cardio. Should upgrade to full gym.

very good value for money. perfect position.
Toilets on the ground floor need to be inspected and cleaned every minute because of heavy usage. I have to avoid it several times because it was very smelly.

Convenient and decent
Great location, didn't really go for the facilities so didn't really access them. A little dated and some items were not functioning (iron, safe) but it is clean and the room size is generous.

Decent Stay
Hotel may look old outside but the rooms n interior are refurbished and looks brand new. Only one slightly less advantage is the parking is limited and it open air parking. Will consider to stay there again.
