-Good location – close to the city centre, river, park, shops and restaurants
-The corridor, lift and the room were dirty. The worst thing about the hotel was the cigarette smell which we could feel everywhere. Ashtrays are located all around so people are encouraged to smoke everywhere. We stayed in the no smoking room and we could feel the cigarette smell very strongly. There was the massage left next to the bed 'not to smoke in the bed'
-In addition we have notice high level of noise coming from the street as the hotel is situated directly on very busy road. All night long we could hear motorbikes, cars ect passing through the street along the river.
-Do not be mistaken by the location and river view the hotel can offer. Actually the hotel is not located at the river as there is a busy road and pedestrians separating the hotel from the river passage. Also along the river there is a tick line of trees so even if you get a room with river view you will hardly see the river. It is not worth paying extra money for it, plus if you are light sleeper you will not get much sleep because of the street noise in the day and night.
In general I would not recommend this hotel to anybody as it was too noise, dirty and smelly. We staid just for 1 night catching connection flight to Hong Kong but it was perfectly enough to hate this place. The staff speaks basic English and does not make any effort to make you feel comfortable. The only person we found helpful was night portiere who helped us catch the taxi to the airport.
