Close to train station
Very close to train station. Friendly reception staffs. Newly renovated but workmanship not ideal, the tap cover and windows fell off. Super small toilet. We stayed on level 5 and the room has pillars around, I bend my forehead twice.

Check in was delayed by 1hr 40min. Hotel staff provided gave mix nuts for waiting. Excuse was given as the delay was to give bigger room. But the room given was also snall.

10/10 Exceptional

Exceptional service at the front desk. Everyone I dealt with went above and beyond. On arrival gave realistic time frame for early check in time. We had two nights booked but decided to add a third and desk accommodated us well with a good price and able to keep same room. Asked for extra pillows at night and front desk gave us them. Area perfect because you are just around the corner from train station and literally across the street from bus lot that all the tour companies depart from. Did not use the buffet in the morning because we fell in love with a bakery around the corner. Supermarket nearby to get cheap to go foods and drinks. Nice room, TV has nice selection of channels. Comfortable bedding.
