The room where we stayed was on the sunny side so it was pretty hot in the room even the window is open. But overall experience was very good! The comfort of city living can offer - accessible to food shops, resto-bars, convenience stores, easy commute and city attractions.

Beds are amazing, had a great sleep and added benefit of asking for harbor view room during summer meant the room was a great temperature.
