Modern hotel centrally located for sight seeing . Very enjoyable 3 night stay in a Club executive room . Friendly and professional staff . Excellent service in the club lounge . Fantastic view of the towers from our club room which was spotlessly clean and modern and well worth the extra cost considering the daily complimentary 2 hour bar and snacks. A couple of things prevent me from giving the hotel 5/5 . The 'hot' options at breakfast were lukewarm at best and the food selection is geared more to Asian guests rather than Europeans. The air-con in our room was inefficient . However I would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again and would highly recommend it . Top Tip - Use the Grab taxis ( equivalent of Uber ) for city travel . Rediculously cheap and friendly drivers . Read less

Beautiful view of the twin towers, very helpful staff and warm welcome. Lovely spa, we had a couples massage and really enjoyed it. Location is excellent, walking distance to large shopping mall and easy access to public transportation. We definitely will stay again next time
