Rooms were good, breakfast was vast and had everything, 26th floor was quiet, comfortable bed, places/stores/markets to walk to, elevators were slow for about an hour each morning, but it was priced well, Taxis easy to get.

My husband and I checked in at Club room and I thought foods and drinks are free at Club Lounge just like other hotels. However everything was charged except some cookies. Very limited choice of breakfast selection so I had breakfast on 5/F restaurant which a bit of noisy from kids. No doubt, breakfast on 5/F were much better. Gym... More

when I checked in, it took reception a long time to find my booking. When they found it, they told me to go to VIP reception which is a special room around the corner. To me, all the fuzz is simply stupid. I'm only here for one night for business. All I wanted was quick check in and out. Other... More

My first impression of the hotel was not so good. We checked in around 9:30 in the evening. The lobby was dark, empty and didn't look inviting at all. The room was spacious but showed signs of aging. Bathroom was pretty spacious too but the show stall was a little small though still adequate. The beds were comfortable, however there... More

I stayed for a business trip just one night. The concierge, porter and check in staff were all very nice. The wifi worked well and the breakfast choice was huge!

I rapidly became ill (respiratory) in a smoky room in a "No Smoking" hotel. Surprising as "NO Smoking" is strictly applied in Australia and guests would be fined for smoking. Smoking in hotels is a serious fire hazard if people fall asleep smoking in bed - so some nervousness about hotel attitude allowing smoking in rooms.. We were upgraded to... More
