        The Hotel is very good located, near the metro station, the shopping street and it was very clean and the staff was amazing gentle.

      • Group of friends

        The room is cosy and to my surprise, it's bigger than I expected. The single bed is actually good for 2 persons. There's Starbucks on the ground floor which is connected to the hotel. Very convenient. From the entrance, you couldn't tell it's a hotel.

      • Single

        location of the hotel was quite central. within a minute walk to the subway station. the single room was small though functional and clean. with starbuck (with wifi) at the lobby was a bonus.

        it would be great if the temperature of the room can be controlled.
