Negative Reviews

Karaoke events made it noisy at night

There are live late-night karaoke events in the hotel on Fridays and Saturdays, stretching over to midnight. Some guests, especially the ones on the first floor, were disturbed by the noise. However, the guests can request for a change of room to the second floor, if available.

No Lift access to top floors

The hotel has rooms on the first and second floor but there is no elevator access. Some guests, especially ones with older travellers, found this to be inconvenient.

Not for business travellers

Guests travelling for business purpose found the rooms to be uncomfortable. Some rooms only had a bar stool and no desk or chair to work. There have also been complaints of Wi-Fi not having good connectivity in some rooms.
