I stayed here for a week on business. More than a hotel room, you get something that is more like an apartment, but without the kitchen (there's a fridge and a microwave.... but no pots, pans, plates, cutlery, etc. Nice living room area with the comfiest sofas I have ever had in a hotel room! The hotel was perfectly clean and tidy, had a nice restaurant where the food was very good (I ate here several times for breakfast and dinner). The bar is a part of the restaurant, it's ok but not really thought out as a seperate area very well.
The hotel is opposite a massive shopping mall called Gateway with lots of restaurants, some bars, cinema, etc, etc.
I walked around the immediate area to the hotel on several occasions and felt perfectly safe, there appears to be no issues with safety here and plenty of security guards patrolling around.
I think the hotel was fantastic value for money, from the room cost to the food and drink. Great for business travel.
