The service especially front desk (Adriana and Christopher) were very helpful and always cheerful even when they're swamped with guests. The rooms are generally kept clean, however the construction was quite noisy. My room was quite small compared to the others in the same price range but the beds were comfortable and generally clean.
The breakfast buffet that was included during my stay was pleasant enough as well. Their chef was always very enthusiastic. They have a good selection of food, I guess the price was fair since everything around the area was priced just as expensively. In the mornings it got quite noisy in the restaurant because there is usually a woman selling lottery tickets like there's no tomorrow from 7 ish to 8 ish in the morning.
