The front desk employee had an attitude. It is un necessary.

Nice location in the center of china-town, good communication with other parts of the city. The property is clean & well maintained. The morning breakfast is nice and filling. Most of the senior service staffs were good & friendly ( I really praise the behavior of the old man at the cloak room). I will only down-rate the front desk staff for their efficiency, they were pretty slow, sometimes the rooms were not ready by even 8 PM for checking in. Overall good experience.

Lock on door into women's dorm wouldn't work. Lockers were broken, and in process of staff moving bags to another room, an item must have dropped out. But the cleanliness was fantastic, the beds were comfortable, the linens were great, and the electrical outlets were perfect.
