Bad service, pretentious with mosquito Mar 31, 2012
Location:

Located within walking distance from subway and night market, but not near. It is situated in a small back alley, which is difficult to spot and locate. The directions printed on the hotel name card is bad, tried to use my google navigation but I cant even locate the hotel address on my google map.

Overall, i had difficulty going back to the hotel many times due to the hidden location.

Amenities:

Hotel with a small lobby, a lounge and awful breakfast I ever had.

The hotel was a designer/art hotel with various theme room, howvere I think it only applies to the higher range room. The room I had wasnt impressive, and not carpeted.

The room was spacious though, the sofa and bed is separated with a rotating TV. Broadband is provided, and international socket is available too.

Bed:

Bed was comfortable. Great for people who dont like firm bed, as well as suitable for people who not used to soft mattress. It is 2 single combine into a double bed but no gap in between. You will not get disturb if your sleeping partner is tossing and turning.

Bathroom:

Bathroom wasnt any fantastic, with a bath tub. Design average and small.

But I was surprised that the hotel provides loccitane products for all the bathroom amenities. The shower area is provide with 3 different type of sprays in a designer shower head, quite cool though.

Service:

Service was BAD. Being in a 4 star hotel, we are not able to check in early till 3pm due to unavailable of rooms. They didnt inform us when room was ready, went back to check at 3:00pm and still unavailable. After some hurry, then it was ready by 3:15pm, which is late.

There is no one to help you with the lugguge, only one staff at the recept, no currency exchange, and bad breakfast.

Breakfast starts at 7am, and we were there at 7.30am, food almost finish by earlier group, and there wasnt any refill. No one to show you where to sit or didnt even mention about free sitting. Breakfast choice was limited with left over, awful cooking and not warm.

Value:

Although a 4 star hotel, there was no service at all. The staff wasnt rude but simply left you alone.

And bathroom and bedroom had 2-3 mosquitos. VERY BAD!!!

It is consider a boutique hotel. Room wasnt too bad, but I will not wants to go back again for the various bad experiences. However, if you are good with directions, and just needed a place which is above average to stay, this will be a good hotel admist the price tag.
