The hotel is centrally located so we could walk to shopping malls and food outlets easily. The hot, cold and room temperature water dispensers at each floor was a bonus as it...

Very small room and they tried to palm me off with one without a window - no way!!! I would recommend if...

Cleanliness varies, while my room was nice and clean, my friends' room had hair at one of the corner. Hotel is still new, so its very pleasant to stay in. Bed were very comfortable, and there were...
