The room is big but the whole hotel looked old. When I arrived there is no one to assist to open the main door (non automatic type). The toilet flushing is not working well and have to call for the maintenance. The price is also consider on the high side as this is the only hotel which does not include breakfast.
On the last day check out when I asked the hotel to arrange for airport transfer, it turn it is a yellow cab and not a hotel car (if I need a cab, there are plenty on the street), and the price I paid for is definitely on the high side.
By the way the hotel is not that near to the MRT station, althought still within walking distance.
