Friendly and helpful staff. Good selection of breakfast variety. Free hotel shuttle bus to other parts of the city. The location is very close (2 minutes walk) to hawker food stalls, Ban Heang Chinese pastry shop.

Best location for eating and shopping. Unfortunately there's only one elevator that was working to cater to the hundreds of guests there.

Exceptional 10.0
The staff were all excellent. Polite, friendly, and helpful. The location is superb, and the night market on the same street is a bonus. No complaints about the room at all. The only area for improvement is the wifi signal was very weak in our room and at times we needed to stand by the door.

Very good 8.0
The location is good where many food stalls around the vicinity. You need to have more lounge chairs as there's no space to relax, the foyer is too small. Your lounge set needs to be updated too. The bathroom is not very clean as I noticed the basins are not washed properly.

Located in a great spot right on new lane street food market. Staff are all great. Room was lovely and renovated. The cool Jacuzzi out with the pool was great to sit in on a very hot day.
