Positive Reviews

Stellar Location, Especially for Business

Excellent city centre locale for all travellers, especially those with business-oriented purposes Surrounding area provides restaurants, shopping & bars with close proximity to Chinatown.

Brilliant & Welcoming Staff

Although stress from being understaffed schedule-wise might be upon them, these workers have perpetually positive attitudes, with nothing out of bounds for them regarding your comfort Don't hesitate to contact them during your stay if anything is amiss.

Delightful Rooms & Decor

Rooms are quite lovely and the modernized boutique-style hotel has retained its architectural character while upgrading necessary features Plenty of space in the mid-sized rooms and larger with compliments to the high ceilings, in-room music-playing devices & espresso machines Large baths with separate showers, plush robes & slippers, make these rooms 4-star material.

Negative Reviews

Understaffed at Check-In, Dining & Overall

Count on a wait during busier times for check-in, check-out and meal times The bar appears to have staffing issues as well, so you may be uncorking your own wine Complimentary newspapers are overlooked and not delivered Breakfast is fresh & cooked to order, but the wait is exorbitant Buffet would be less time-consuming for busier guests. Eating elsewhere for less cost seems to be ideal.

Noisy Rooms Not Ideal

Ask for higher floor rooms if possible to avoid undue street noise from outside front-facing windows, even as high as the fourth floor at times.

Unclean & Unprepared Rooms

Details may be overlooked here, and requesting a different room may not be possible at times of full occupancy Double rooms may not have two sets of amenities like robes/slippers, facecloths, cups for tea, etc so you may need to call down for more. Bring your own cleaning wipes in case of missed housekeeping details such as mould around edges and dirt in crevices.
