Front desk's lady was very welcoming. Newly refurbished room, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and the hotel restaurant could be skipped. Arrangement for waiting and seating was chaotic, food was not up to standard with such price. However, it was an excellent hotel with good location if you forget the restaurant.
