I was scared reading the negative comments from both TripAdvisor and Booking.com. However, 2 years ago I remembered it very well about the long lines for taxi waiting and MRT during the exhibition, so we decided to give it a go. I have specifically informed that I would like to stay in building A as adviced by TripAdvisor members and it really paid off. I think the room is a lot better than we expected, they are quite new. The 3 elevators work excellent until the day before our departure that there were some maintenance going on (out of my 5 day stay). The check in takes around 20 minutes, we left our luggages at the reception and go out first. There are shampoo, bath gel, soap provided but I would say the quality is not so good. The hair dryer is upon requested. We requested for the double bed in each room but it came with a double bed in the master bedroom and twin beds in another. Both bedroom doors cannot be locked. The towels are new and changed everyday. There are a microwave, boiler, washing machine, iron, a fridge with key provided. We make a local phone call once and it was not charged. The best thing is that the Internet is free throughout the hotel and it is in a good quality. There is a shoe polish machine in front of the elevator. The breakfast in our first day was horrible, it was vegetarian with bake beans, grilled tomatos, mushrooms and breads so we stopped eating there since. The building A is the closest to the exhibition so it is better to go eat there. However, we tried again in our last day and it was very much improved. There were veal bacons and beef sausages together with fresh vegetables and fruits. Maybe it was because we went there around 10 AM on our first day but 8:30 AM in our last day. The check out takes around half an hour but what is worse is that the taxi calling takes an hour. The last day the taxi never come and the reception informed us that someone has been waiting since 11 AM until 5 PM, the reception has no clues how much time the taxi would be coming since the taxi company cannot give them the answer so we cross to the other side and get the taxi ourselves. The last day I found baby cockroaches in the cake I left in the room even though the rest of the room seems clean so I would recommend to keep the food in the fridge.
