    If you must...

    There's nothing really wrong with it. It's not as close to the subway as I thought, about 15 minute walk. I was surprised that it received 3 stars. It's not a dump, but not 3 stars either. The neighbor is not bad, but nothing to see or do. It's most industrial, lots of auto shops.

    Just a place to sleep

    Two computers in room - ace. Breakfast is basically self serve toast. No air con Hard bed No wardrobe This is intended as a single (fun) night kind of "hotel".

    5/5 Excellent

    best to stay for going around the city

    I cannot ask for more. Very helpful staff and awesome room. Wi-Fi is fast and there are computers available inside the room so there's no need to bring your laptops.

    5/5 Excellent

    Big samsung TV , jacuzzi bath and good toiletry items and free bar drinks. Wifi if possible if it available in English. Front desk staff was very polite and helpful. Hotel could be improve to make it more prominent as it has excellent facilities. More greenery can be placed at the exterior stairway exit area. Excellent hotel.
