The location of this hotel is very good, literally 20 yrds from the monorail and with a decent shopping mall directly opposite, so very convenient indeed. Breakfast is also good.
On the downside, our room was tired, bathtub peeling, carpet had seen better days, generally needed a refurbishment. The keycard system that worked the door and the lifts is pretty useless, taking at least 3 attempts to open the door and leaving us and several other guests stranded in lifts that refused to move twice (we only stayed 2 nights).
Another downside was that upon leaving the hotel we asked the porter to get us a taxi, and we were ushered into an unmetered taxi with a stroppy driver who tried to overcharge us. I would expect at 4 star hotel, in a city full of licencsed and metered taxis, to be given a metered taxi, rather than a slightly cowboy one, so that was disappointing.
Overall average, surprised by how good the reviews are but maybe we got a bad room. Expected a bit more for the price.
