Okay for a short trip.
Parking a bit tight, its underground. Lifts are confusing at first with no proper labeling. Huge and clean room, basic amenities. Small window.

short stay ok; new rooms for family- but toilet and bathroom facilities require further refurbishment; staff friendly. comfortable for family. One good thing- if you have family of more than 3 kinds, all could stay on one room-though not that spacious, for medium budget, it is recommended.

6/10 Good

Hotels staff are nice. However, hotel looks gloomy and dull. Huge space for every one. Comfortable but old interior. Would be much better after renovation works.
