Price fine, Location Fine, Room are Fine...only thing lack that good to know is it does not have dedicated and sufficient parking space for guest. You either have to just park along the road side in front of the hotel or park in the public car park and walk about 5 minutes to hotel. And the wifi usage is limited to certain number of device only.

Location is superb but you will facing with parking lot issue! Terribly to find even one parking space!! With the price (quite pricey) the room as well not providing mini fridge plus bathroom and wardrobe super smelly. For family room suggested to put one unit mini fridge to avoid kids from started their tantrums! Overall not suggested for family with small kids to stay here due to high traffic during day and night! Hopefully this hotel will improved their unit to served better! Thank you!

Its a best place for a short stay and affordable. There were many eateries nearby which is a plus. However, there is no designated parking so had a hassle to park in public spot and had a air-conditioning problem towards my last hours of stay due to some wiring problem and didn't get it fixed it asap. That's the cons i faced
