Ok: The staff very helpful & kind. The room was clean & quite spacious. Not ok: Only received 3 channel tv to watch. Weird bathroom design. Who want enjoy your partner post-pooping smell in the room LOL. Not convenient to open & close 2 doors to use toilet & shower at the same time.

Good location, clean hotel”

The hotel is good value for money. Location is excellent - it is near a popular mall, as well as other eateries. There wasn't a fridge in my room, but there was a communal fridge available near the reception. A water fountain was also made available to guests. I enjoyed my stay very much. However, this hotel is less suited for those who are disabled and require accessibility features such as wheelchair ramps, etc. There is no elevator. If carrying luggage, be prepared to lug it up one flight of stairs.

Good Location, Disappointing Staff”

I honestly didn't expect much from a windowless room. Just booked a few nights to go diving nearby at Sunny Reef's. In the first night, I thought one of the other guests was loudly playing some ego-shooter game, so I tried to bear it, up to 3:00 AM... The next day I realized it was the staff playing on their cellphones. After I asked them to turn down the volume, it was no problem anymore, but they seem completely wasted and dont't even try to look you in the eyes or smile. The room however was clean, including the shower. Roomservice was good and check-in and check-out were flawless and quick. Expect them to ask you for tourism tax payment on arrival.
