                        • Ideal location to be in, the hotel frontline staff are friendly and well over the service level I expected. The room is rather clean, the TV is an LCD TV is good and food is fantastic.

                          The water in the bathing area was not able to clear fast enough, the bed sheet was not even tucked under the mattress properly and unfortunately the gym was under renovation I enjoyed the swimming pool.

                        • Near to my meeting location, good for a 1 night stop over and the hotel is modern and has all the expected facilities of a top of the line hotel. The service is fast and the room is spacious comfortable. Breakfast is best ever and the swimming pool is also a great spot to hang out.

                          Quite far away from airport, taxis to the city were expensive and the staff were very rude especially bellboys. The bed we slept on was noisy and kind of uncomfortable, gave me backache, lastly the mattress was lumpy uncomfortable, the restaurant was occupied mainly by government servant.
