The hotel was excellent, with good service staff. Even though the washroom in the room was a tad small (we stayed in a twin sharing room), the water flow was excellent (warm hot water!) Amenities like shampoo, conditioner, facial foam and bath foam are all provided in large bottles for usage, unlike other hotels which give out small bottles of soap. (So ecologically friendly!) and the soaps are of relatively good quality too! Panasonic ion hair dryer provided (: (: (: and sufficient power sockets in the room for charging of handphones, cameras, etc.
There was a small cupboard in the room with spare pillows and hangers, which came in handy(:
One downside to our stay was that the hotel room was not brightly lit, even with all the lights in the room turned on (yellow lighting), it still was quite dim (think romantic), which could be troublesome for those of us who prefer brighter lit hotel rooms. Also the Wifi signal in the room was slightly iffy, I use an iphone 4 and for the first few days the only way to get signal was to sit at the door of the room open... hmm... my friend using her samsung s4 had no issues though.
The hotel is conveniently located near shopping malls and departmental stores, and even a 24 hour supermarket, in Dayz Town (about 7 minutes walk) down, on the way towards the Okura Epochal hotel next to the conference centre. There's a Daiso there too, and a gaming arcade in the basement of Dayz Town.
Just FYI, non-smoking floors are nice, 5th floor has washing machines and vending machines, though noticed it seemed to have a smoke smell.
Overall, nice hotel. really enjoyed my stay there. (I was there end August 2013)
