    Dont worry about washroom and staff friendliness. Only things need to concern are room cleanliness, and you might find energy consuming to reach it place. Please take note that breakfast is provided, but just bread, cereal, milk and juice.More

    Chinatown
    Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
    sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
    sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
    blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
    Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
    almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
    continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
    the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
