        • Good location in Chinatown and near Central station. Liked everything about the place and great for the rate. Much quieter than george street, style very well maintained and staff at front desk were helpful.

          In the same case, the other hotel never take your money for that and you can look around without, sometimes loud music from the bar late at night, you could hear in my room.
