Get ready for the worst service
With its prime location, the hotel’s service was consistantly disappointing. Durig the first week, I either had to go pick up some bathroom supplies, including towels, and water or call them to refill it 3 times. The cracker crumps on the table was gone but only to the floor. The most disappointing event during the stay was that the housekeeper took my kids’ stuffed animals that they sleep with. I told them with or without any bad intention, she took my belongings without my permission so I want them back right away. Hotel managers handled situation so poorly. They first didn’t even take the inccident seriouly but said she would check with housekeeping next day. My young kids couldnt go to sleep because of 100% their fault. When I “volunteered” to help finding them, she said she was short-handed at the moment so I had to wait. I waited upstairs for a good hour and eventually went downstairs. They still didn’t take it seriously and no proper appologies. Imagine they took your other important belongings, such as wallets or purses. Even if it was an accident (I don’t think the housekeeper took them intentionally), the problem was they don’t take those theft seriouly. The manager, Jay Park, was present but didn’t even bother to take the case or show any signs of appology. Jerome Lee, another manager, appologized more properly next day. Yet still they came to my room to do house keeping when I specifically requested not to come in next day. The dolls returned with bad smells

Great hotel, room too small.
Hotel was really nice and hotel staff was very friendly, but our room was incredibly small for 3 people. Best part was that we were really close to many tourist attractions (less than 10 minutes from one of the palaces and more).
