Pro: The hotel is near seafood eateries, Centrepoint shopping mall, convenience stores, laundromat. The breakfast buffet spread is excellent and the food is good. The staff are friendly and the service is good.👍👏👏👏 Con: The room that my hubby and I was first assigned had aircon problem and the room was hot. We tolerated for 2 nights and after our feedback we were transferred to another room on the 3rd night.
