We stayed here in Dec at the same time as the SEA games. Paid around US$80 per night, way overpriced. This hotel is probably worth $30-40. We didn't have much choice due to peak season.
We booked the deluxe room via an online hotel booking website. In the picture there was a sitting area, but when we checked in our room was way smaller without the sitting area. According to them there were two types of deluxe room. So if you want the sitting area make sure you specify in the booking.
The staffs were very polite and helpful and they changed our room the next day because we arrived late.
We moved to room 602, the room is quite spacious, but their standard of cleanliness is very poor. We had a small kitchenette area with a sink. There were ants everywhere around the bench and the sink. There were stains here and there on the sofa. The blanket was covered by bedsheets top and bottom, but it looked old and dirty. We just made sure it's completely covered by the bedsheets at all times.
The bathroom was TERRIBLE. It was like half done, I posted some photos. The hot and cold water system were separated. There was no shower screen so when you shower the whole bathroom/toilet was wet. The toilet paper was unreachable as the holder is all the way behind you on the wall as you use the toilet. It was just the worst hotel bathroom I've ever seen. But apparently every room is different, so I'm not sure about the others.
Breakfast on the rooftop restaurant was quite decent. Not much choice but ok to start the day.
Wifi was intermittent. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not.
Staffs are probably the best part of the hotel. They're all friendly, helpful, some speaks decent English, some not. But they're all nice.
Overall it was an ok stay. Won't return though, might spend a bit more and stay in a 4 star or higher.
