I'm at hotel sixty3 right now.
It's smack in the city - location is great for business / shopping / food but because its a city hotel, there's no view to speak of.
View apart, the service is warm and friendly. The hotel is a surprising twist from the lobby - totally surprising!
In fact, the inside of the hotel's architecture is fantastic!
Room are large and well furnished. I can see that the hotel and its rooms are newly renovated - so new that the anti-slip tiles in the toilet still feel very "raw" to the barefoot.
I took the normal room - comes with 2 queen beds. My traveling party took the executive room - comes with a king size bed, a full size fold out sofa bed and still space for a rollaway bed.
On the rollaway bed, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from reception that I was entitled to a rollaway bed. Of all the hotels (of this price category), nobody has ever called to offer me that.
The rollaway bed was SUPERIOR to some I had in 5star hotels that cost 4 times more. The rollaway bed here was a proper coil-spring mattress, not some lousy sponge mattress resting on a spring platform.
I was equally impressed by the 4 bottles of bottled water, and the recycled shopping bag provided to all rooms foc. Wonderful!
Tho I hope they will keep up the standard. It's new now, so everything's looking good and works well.
Oh, by the way there's free wifi and daily newspapers too. :)
