1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The room was very small, and there were a lot of ants that swarmed personal things in the room

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The rooms are outdated. Not what you expect after seeing the lobby area. The doors do not block out or diminish sounds. All activities in the hallway were clear n loud, making privacy in the reverse questionable. Breakfast was good...nice seasonal fruits. Great service at reception. Ms Wendy was very helpful.

Vehicular traffic sounds on the 1st & 2nd floors
My family & I stayed for one night. The room was nice, clean & fresh. The check in was smooth and overall service was excellent. The only issue was that we stayed on the second floor as we wanted a room with two double beds and was told that the rooms with double beds are only on the first and second floors as such from time to time you tend to hear the vehicular traffic outside which takes away from the quietness of the room and may make sound sleep tough if you are a light sleeper. The hotel does however supply ear plugs for guests in these rooms. But apart from that, very good hotel.
