The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, the bed is huge and comfortable and the rooms has air condition which is of course very nice for everyone not used to 30°C. They are always ready to help and even arranged for a birthday cake and song for my fellow traveller when we returned from one of our tours!
The hotel offers 24 hours in-house massage, and I am sorry I only had time for one treatment as the masseuse was both professional and skilled.
The hotel location is also really good for shopping as it lies but a very short stroll from the newly built and modern mall SM. I found the mall to have great prices for high quality clothes, shoes etc and I'd really recommend it if you're a bit tired of haggling prices at the market.
All in all the hotel is a great place to stay, but it shows that it has been a while since it was last refurbished. It has a dated look, but that's not so important. The bathrooms in particular are not in great shape though, but they are clean and functional. The showers should be replaced and the exceptionally noisy ventilation as well. Some rooms have power sockets with both EU/Asia - be sure to ask for one if you forgot your adapter.
