Amazing Front Office Manager, Charles”

There is a bus straight to the Airport. BF /lunch / Dinner buffets are great! Very friendly housekeeping staff, very courteous. Wifi is only free for a couple days. What stood out for us is the Front Office Manager, Charles. People often don't see what took for those managers to become what they are. Out of everyone, Charles’ service was at another level. His efficient and being able to multi-task and really ‘genuine’. He understands the customer service and what his role is. The company must value him and ensure he gets recognized so that his hard work gets paid. Thank you for your genuine interest in our stay.

A rare, with a good quality facility and free parking spaces for the guests, located at DMC area. DMC area itself could be a hidden gem for foreign travelers, but they should study a bit to experience it all. The convenience store on the 1st floors lacks quantity and quality, but you can find better convenience stores all around hotel just near it. Always recommendable.

This hotel is in the digital media district, so there's not much of a night life here at all, if you're looking for that. However, there are great food options so if you're traveling on business, you won't go hungry. And if you're a gym rat, then the gym has pretty much all the equipment you need.

Very Noisy Hotel with Thin Walls ”

If you are looking for sleep and rest, look elsewhere. I came here to sleep but I was constantly woken up by my neighbors talking loudly to each other next door or in the hallway, cleaning sounds coming right through the walls and door, and very very loud sounds of doors slamming shut. The room doors slam very loudly and guests have to make an effort to shut it without making a noise. Hotel staff slam room doors while they clean and they yell at each other loudly in the hallways. I can also hear people upstairs. The hotel is not particularly clean either. The walls have mystery smears and marks on them, the cushions for the sitting area look as old as time. The curtains have strange stains on them. Also, curtains are NOT black out curtains. The sun shines right through in the morning. The mattress is very uncomfortable. It gives in too much without support. The pillows are some of the worst I have ever slept on. They look like toy pillows with the shape but no support of use.
