6/10 Good

Needs refurbishing and doesn’t look like what is in the photo’s. It smells like curry in the hallways. My knife broke on me (utensil) and no even milk provided. The employees are nice though.

8/10 Very good

Have stayed here many times including before 2020 Covid. Very good convenient location near public transport and shops. Nice, friendly staff especially manager Steven Zhang. Very Good pricing, nice rooms,good facilities with kettle, microwave, fridge, and cooking utensils within the 3 room unit. Some rooms have fans. Please put fans in all rooms as it is getting hotter towards summer. Only one issue is pity that there is only 1 lift for a 20 floor building. it can take some time to go to your room or come down to reception as it can get very busy. Apart from that this is a very nice place to stay and would definitely stay here again in the future

4/10 Fair

The saying you get what you pay for can only be stretched so far. The price was ok, the location was great, but the state of the property was mind blowing. I'm not sure how H&S hasn't shut this place down. bones left on multiple levels of the staircase, fire hose fittings used as ash trays and vomit on the staircase wall that had dripped down 3-4 levels. There is a smell of cigarettes throughout the building but is stronger at different levels. The front desk attendant was polite enough, but did not really care about the issues I pointed out that could be easily fixed. The room was fine for a night or 2 but feel that a minimal effort on cleaning could make a difference.

10/10 Exceptional

Nice place . However only 1 lift for a 20 storey building and in peak hours takes long time for lift to reach your floor as mine was 19th floor. Ideally another lift is needed.
