1) when we checked in late, it takes more than 20 minutes for process.. surprise is that what make the slow process is that the reception read our passport at the photocopy machine...is there are interesting to see? 2) after successfully check in, when we go to room, the porter as us.. "do you want to take your luggage by your own or we take for you?" .. is that how you ask your customer? 3) the room aircond is not cool...after even on for one day and 16 degree with max fan 4) internet is poor... we connect and then disconnect.. when we told them is not stable, their manager came to our room to fix... then ask us to remove the anti virus... AVAST... legally buy...we didn't experience this in ours 5 start hotel 5) we felt the bed a bit too firm for us... so we ask for put a padding to make softer... guess what, they just put 1" padding.... we have bad sleep thru the 3 nights....we have been choose 5 star is because want to have a comfortable bed...best rest to have energy to work in next day.. this hotel had been my dream hotel to stay... but after this... i will rather choose others ...

Good Location.
Every thing was great during my stay. I'm not sure about food as its too expensive to buy breakfast in hotel. Staff were helpful. They should be trained on English conversation a little more to suit the 5 star qlty and such a great location.
