An older but well-maintained hotel. Extremely clean. Very nice staff. Comfortable (very firm) mattress. Brightly lit gym. Right outside the Dongsi line 2 metro (20 ft?) and walking distance to restaurants around Workers Stadium. Not modern ultra-luxury but a comfortable place to stay.
Very, very, very slow Wifi.
The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is located at close proximity to the center, an ideal starting point for many trips. The hotel breathes a very luxurious air which made the stay a very pleasant one. Overall, staff very friendly and helpful - with good English service.
During the last night there was a lot of noise due to unscheduled maintenance. The staff said that they would take care of it but didn't. I had to complain several times before they told me they could not do anything about it. They solved the problem by shifting us to the top floor. For the inconvenience they offered us free breakfast and a free shuttle to the airport. So in the end they did their best.
The swimming pool
Too cold in the room.The heating system did not function well in our room.
Stuff are nice, but hotel conditions & facilities are only worthy 4 stars!
Airco is really bad!
The location just down the road from a good market and right next to a MRT.
Being woken early on a Sunday by a chambermaid in search of laundry - thinking my breakfast was included in the rate I booked only to find it wasn't and that the breakfast was quite expensive! (no doubt my own fault)
good & prompt service
they should offer complimentary internet access like 90% of other main hotels. about 10 euros per day are way too much and not at all justified.
Has nice gym and hair salon.
Internet was not working for one day and I.T. person wasn't very good at solving the problem.
Within reasonable distance to airport and shopping sites.
Paying for Poor Internet Services that was out more than on.
Great location; close to major attractions
There was a big renovation of the lobby going on. Very inconvenient and there was no mention of that fact prior to my arrival!
