Friendly, although somewhat indifferent staff - can't say too much here since I didn't need anything. My room (ground floor, 106) was huge with a large spa for two persons (didn't dare to use it except for showering), a comfortable bed and all the usual hotel gear, except a "don't disturb" sign.
On my second night (a Saturday) an extremely noisy party was going on inside the hotel, disco music was playing so loudly that it was hard for me to understand the dialogue of the movie that was shown on TV (even with the volume cranked up to an embarassing level). I was on the verge of going to the reception, but then the noise stopped - at 0:15am!!!
This party thing seems to be exceptional, though, since on my first night (a Friday) everything was quiet. I noticed, though, that it is very easy to hear what is going on outside of the room, so I can easily believe what another reviewer wrote, namely that the reception traffic may be very disturbing (the other reviewer's room 103 *is* close to reception). When booking/checking in, I would recommend asking for a room that is not close to the reception, and inquiring about events that might be going on during your stay (esp. if you are staying over the weekend).
Internet access is by cable only (i.e. no WiFi), but they give you a cable for your laptop at the reception. I found access costs to be a rip-off, though: $10/h!!! Nobody will pay that, so everybody will take the more expensive 1 day (24h) package. This is better priced in terms of value-for-money (something >= $20), but I think it's still expensive - and the cheek is that there is also a volume limit (300 MB for 1 day). Ok, 300 MB is sufficient for most needs, but still...
I wasn't impressed by the hotel restaurant's food, the Vietnamese place next door was better.
One final thing: House cleaning staff will change towels even though you don't throw them on the floor :-(
