  • Group of friends

    The location is good. The staff is general helpful. The wireless internet is convenient.

    1. The hotel is old. Some equipment can be updated. 2.We lived in the 5th floor. Some noise came from top floor. We guessed it may be the sound of water tower in the top floor but not very sure. Although we graduately got used to that sound, it is still annoying.
