They had issues with the online system and it continued to overbook guests. We successfully booked and paid 2 weeks in advance, but was still turned away, similar to many other guests at the lobby. In the end around 8pm they managed to get us a room, but due to overcrowding, no toiletries (no towels to shower but extra toilet paper given?). There were tea/coffee utilities but no hot water kettle available. Breakfast was good with wide selection and omelette station. Overall bad experience, but appreciate the hotel trying their best to accommodate the overcrowded occupancy caused by the technical error. Will consider coming again if no overcrowding.

I'm just arrived, have checked in, when I asked for WiFi password he said currently we have no WiFi access in room due to internal issue. Have go to lobby. I'm very disappointed because as business traveler I really need WiFi. As 4 star hotel with no WiFi access it's no meaning. Better go to 1 star hotel with WiFi access with cheaper price. I have paid for 5 night already. Oh my God!

Slow check-in process. No staff waiting at the lobby during our check-in time. The key card cannot detect the sensor and need to change to another room. I got connecting room for my stay. The another room is noisy and the sound is really disturbing. But the foods are good and tasty with affordable prices.
