I got a stay at this nice hotel at a well discounted price. So the normal rate would be much higher. However, if you could also get a ton of discounts to book and stay at this hotel, then i strongly suggest u take it. The staffs were good and well mannered. The room is huge with a lot of wide spaces. Not your typical small cramped cheap rooms. I mean for a room of two persons, u can actually fit another 10 or more. The only downside, there is no bathtub, at least in my previously booked room. Not sure about other higher level rooms. In a summary, totally recommended!

Expected to have two bathrooms since there are two bedrooms, but there is only one bathroom. Aircond system is not working efficiently. Great location for my purposes. Clean and helpful staff.

The room is very spacious with at-home design, but there were baby cockroaches and the door lock (the chain type) was half-broken, the in-room light is quite dim too. The car park is not user-friendly (have to check in first to get the room key card to open the barrier).
