This hotel was very comfortable and close to the airport. It did cost us quite a bit ($22) to get a taxi from the airport though. We stayed on both our arrival and departure and because our flights arrived late and left early we could not utilise the free shuttle service that the hotel offers. If I was arriving late again, I would consider an airport hotel with a 24 hr shuttle service from the airport.
Apart from that the bed was very comfortable and the shower had plenty of pressure. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood.
For a great traditional Chinese feed check out the Wok in Cafe a short walk away. It offers traditional Chinese food that is well priced in a simple venue.
