The lobby is beautiful. But when you get to your floor , you realize how dirty the carpets are. We stayed there for three nights. And they had some issue with their boiler before we reached. In the cold weather we did not get hot water for 2 nights. After that when the group was upset and asked for refund,...

The room was even worse, beds uncomfortable, pillows rock hard, felt like there was bed bugs. Room was unbreathable. Slow service...

The rooms are very outdated and some rooms smell cigarettes and mold. The location is not very good, specially at night. The wifi doesn't work properly. However, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was full of choices.

The hotel is centrally located and is within easy reach of the Waterfront and town. Rooms are a good size and are clean but could use a refurbishment, however, it is not in dire need of one. The bathrooms are clean and a good size too. What makes this hotel so pleasant for me is the staff who are warm...

Rooms are comfortable with sufficient packing space and a decent bathroom. I had a balcony room facing the CTICC and harbour behind, they offer mountain view rooms as well. Rooms have digital safes. Housekeeping was efficient and the overall cleanliness of the rooms and general areas was up to standard. Had a few maintenance issues, including faulty mini fridge and...
