A little gem that will not disappoint
A great place to stay, centrally located and lots to see right on the doorstep. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Perfect for solo travellers, couples or families. I would recommend this to friends or family without hesitation. I arrived late evening at the airport and used their pickup service. Convenient and the reception stayed open later for me.

Modern Loft in Great Location
Very trendy and modern hotel in a great location that is walking distance to downtown landmarks, parks and China town. There wasn’t a hotel sign outside but had the street numbers and a unique door with a security system which uses a fab card to enter. I was traveling alone and felt very safe. Loved the decor and garden area in the center with couches to lounge. Also had a TV area and patio on my floor. I took the room with AC which was spacious with a living room area, kitchen with an eating counter and the bedroom upstairs loft style with no doors. The TV had a free account of Netflix as an added perk. The staff was very helpful with recommendations and spoke perfect English. All in all I recommend this hotel.

It can be tricky to find but once inside cando living looks great! Staff very helpful. I stayed in a studio apartment for 1 night which was nice, however to note that you can hear noise from the next room as walls very thin! I still had a good nights sleep though!

Good 6,0
Nice, with some problems.
No exterior sign, not easy to find. Only one small trashcan for 3 living areas. The couch was the lowest sitting couch I have ever seen. There is ZERO soundproofing, you hear everything from your neighbors. New condition, but the lack of soundproofing and the extremely low couch ruined the stay for me. AND I really disliked having to sign an "OUR RULES OF CONDUCT" before I checked in.
