We got a great deal through Agoda (as a long term user), we saw the price quote sticked to the door in our room showed that the reg price of our room was USD$300+ but we paid less than half ($140?? just about) we were there in late April. Weather was not too cool and not hot yet, perfect for us.
We were on the 6 floor and got the mountain view that faced the side where the cable car is headed from the park. Every morning, I could not help to look out the window to see the morning fog slowly burned off and the mossy like mountain range right in front of you. We did not even bother to close the window drape because there would be no one on the other side to look inside our room, only the nature that was staring at you!!!
the room was big but there seemed to lack of hooks in the bathroom (this problem seems to run at all hotels in the country!) Breakfast was good and included in the room price, nothing to write home about since it was just typical English/American style of breakfast or a bowl of Korean style of noodle. On the weekends they served you buffect style, you have more choices. Best to fill your belly before you go into the parks so that you don't have to pay high price for some okay food. The breakfast is served in the Queen's room on the 2nd floor, very nice room to be dine in for sure!
At the time we were there the internet connection was not good in the room at ALL, if you are web person, you may want to get yourself a local phone card at the airport but not too cheap though. Here at the hotel you get good connection only at the lobby by the den area.
Anyway, we did have good time and would like to stay thete again if we can get the great deal!
