Positive Reviews

Well located for work

Business travellers like the city-centre location of this hotel. They find that it's convenient for meetings in town, and also like the fact that, should they have to travel a little farther, the subway is easily accessible too. They also mention that the hotel is equipped with all basic necessities business travellers may require.

Comfy beds

The plush bed linens and the comfort level of the mattresses are one of the main highlights here. Travellers appreciate that they have no trouble whatsoever with getting a great night's sleep in these beds.

Easy access to shops

Those who have come to shop and dine are pleased they chose this hotel as their base. They love that there are so many restaurants in the area that are open until late at night, and according to shopaholics, the busy shopping street is within walking distance, as well.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

Visitors mention that the rooms are not very spacious. Although they are well equipped with all the basics, guests often find there's insufficient space to fully relax.

Air-con centrally controlled

There are many complaints about the rooms being hot, humid and stuffy. Although there is a fan available, all this does is circulate hot air, according to guests. They are left wishing they can control the temperature of their rooms themselves.
