I’ve stayed here countless times and usually it’s a great experience but this time was quite the exception. The staff at check-in (first time seeing this staff) was quite…rude or unfriendly for lack of a better word. No greeting upon check in (after saying checking in and giving my name), I hand my residence card (didn’t ask if it’s ok to make a copy like usual), the room was for two guests (one key this time), and didn’t even tell me the room number (just handed me the slip of paper). Room was clean but quite low water pressure, but the first time experiencing this as well, so perhaps just an older room.

Convenient Hotel
The APA hotel was undergoing construction when I stayed, and you couldn’t notice. The rooms were clean, and comfortable. The WIFI works well and is available in all the rooms. The staff spoke English and were very nice.

Very satisfied
Very convenient location -- right next to the train station. The staffs were very helpful. My friend needed to rent a wheelchair, and one of the staff went out of his way to find us a wheelchair rental nearby. Highly recommend this hotel.
