Firstly if you're looking for hotel right in the heart of shopping, touristy area, this is not the place to stay. However you are close to Chinatown. There is a small supermarket opposite & there are food shops around esp near the Amara which next door. One good thing you can go around the traffic congestion of the more popular areas to get to the attractions. Taxis are cheap & a good bus network. Hop on hop off buses also stop nearby at the Amara.
Pluses the rooms & hotel are clean, modern. We stayed in a deluxe room, which you get on the cheaper deals, no city view & on the lower floors, but really it's just a bed. Pillows were good the king bed was great & firm. What may put off non couples is the glass window, next to the bed, which looks directly into the shower but there is a blind. It seems to be the current fashion in hotel rooms.
Staff are helpful. Pool looks good towels are conveniently placed outside near the pool entrance. Rooms were a decent size it didn't feel claustrophobic like some rooms are.
Free wifi was a major plus.
There is no top sheet on the bed just a light doña. We had communication problems trying to explain we wanted another sheet on top. I had to show the non English speaking room attendant what I needed & the head had no idea either. I mean it's not a problem just personal taste.
Overall couldn't fault anything just depends wether you want to be right in the heart of things. Most decent rooms were well over $ 200 a night & we got our 5 night stay for under this.
Good value for money.
