The bed and room temperature is very comfortable. Enjoyed the stay a lot and the cleanliness of the hotel is superb. However, the in-room breakfast range could be improved with more items included for a set.

Bad service, Beware of credit card scams
Worst service I have ever experianced in Asia but front desk staff. Other staff were friendly but clearly not trained to a level of a 4 star hotel. Also hotel had a power outage which lasted from 3am in the morning until I checked out at 12pm. No Air-conditioning, No explanation, No updates from hotel staff, no hot breakfast. Also be aware this hotel copies your credit card number down in their system, and hand written on the checkin form, and guests have had suspicious transaction post their stay. I offered to check out with my card in their Card machine, but when I refused for them to copy the card number they threatened to call the police on me. had to borrow cash in order to leave that horrid experience
