“What is with the alarms on the doors?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

My husband and I stayed here for one night before a flight the following day. The staff were helpful, even letting us make a short long distance call to our bank for free. The wifi was not working at any point during our stay and the hotel computers were broken. The food in the Asian restaurant upstairs was not good. Very bad pad thai. The included breakfast was good. The small chaat restaurant next door that is owned by the hotel was great and very cheap. Baskins Robbins is just across the steet and a hospital and post office are within walking distance. We slept terribly at this hotel as the doors are alarmed. Every time someone (not us) would leave their doors open slightly, they would beep loudly until shut. There was also a phone in the hallway that rung incessantly. Although the facilities are good and staff was nice, I would not stay here again until they removed the door alarms. We were also charged extra for a slightly late checkout but not provided a receipt.

We had stayed at this hotel during the mid week of January 2014 for 14 Nights with my friends.Our hotel rooms were large.Luxurious; nicer than expected! Big bathrooms. The hotel staff was friendly and eager to please. The included breakfast was good.The room we paid for was probably the best hotel room I've ever stayed in.The BBQ beef steaks at the rooftop was the best,the staff friendly and at your service.

Special Thanks to Mr.Francis and rooftop restaurant guys and also to Ms.Flory for giving us such a nice room . We enjoyed the karaoke music sessions on the Saturdays and Sundays. We will be back......!!!!!!

Dear Jill C.

We thank you for your valuable review and do look forward to having you stay with us once again soon.

Being a compact city hotel we really cannot have an elaborate pool area but we do have a lot of guests that enjoy our small swimming pool.

We look forward to your next visit at our hotel and assure you of our best services.
