Liked: Bed very comfortable..everyday staff will clean the rubbish inside our room...Easy access to train/tram,food,local supermarket and others things.

Disliked: Aside the room,the door locked is very noisy,since people coming in and out until 2am..not very safe and secure since anybody can easy access to any floor of the the hotel since the main access at lower ground didnt use the hotel card to tap before entering..shower is clean but toilet is very dirty..might be because no one know how to use the flush..going into the toilet is safe since u need to tap before entering..
