We stayed in a second floor room looking down on the street, over a 2 stage stay we lucked out and got the same room twice. The aircon was not very efficient and the room stunk of cigarette smoke. The breakfast room was small and crowded. The breakfast choices are geared towards an Asian clientele, certainly not Western tastes, though the staff did cook eggs when asked on our 2nd day..they just don't let anyone know that this option is available. After being out in the heat since 8am we returned to the hotel to refresh about 11.45am only to discover that our room had not yet been made up, so we had to wait another 20 minutes till it was done. We ran out of toilet paper and had to request more. We organised a late checkout until 3.30pm but found ourselves locked out of our room at midday. We saw the poster for the 10th Floor Panorama Restaurant..what a joke, there is NO restaurant, instead it is a conference room and not a very big one either.The hotel is in a good location but for older visitors the many steps at the entry are a bit of a problem.
