Great Location for shopping
Hotel is in a great location, next to the shopping mall. there are several restaurants and coffee shops within couple of minutes walk. Room was pretty clean and nice bed and bathroom. Roof top pool is great, got a good view from it. There is bar next to the pool. The wi-fi was pretty bad in my room, i don't know about the others. I was having much better wi-fi in remote islands, so was expecting a much better wi-fi in this hotel. Checking area is very small, sometimes it's over crowded with Chinese tourists.

Very Good8.0
The hotel was clean and well-maintained, the service staff (front desk, room service, bell staff) was friendly and helpful. but the service at the restaurant Spoon was a bit slow. The room was not big but clean and comfortable, and I like the design of the bathroom. The only problem with the room was that the soundproofing; I stayed at a corner room but still could hear the noise of door closing and opening from other rooms. The hotel has a good gym with a good view of the sea and mountain. It's also between two malls, so it's very convenient to shop.
