Stayed for 5 nights 19th-24th February. Second stay at this hotel. The hotel is set in a superb location on Chulia Street which makes going out in the evenings very easy. There are a multitude of eateries and bars along Chulia Street and Love Lane right on the doorstep. I would say the location of the hotel is one of it's best features. Complimentary evening drink and ice cream on the roof terrace served by a very friendly and sociable bar tender, this was a nice touch as well as the free tea and biscuits that were available during the day. The room was clean and well kept, however there seemed to be a problem with the flow of water from the shower which made it a bit difficult to have a nice hot blast of water on you at the end of a hot sweaty day. Breakfast was ok, not the biggest selection but enough for both of us. Eggs can be cooked to your liking to order. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would stay again because of the excellent location.

I didn’t make any advance book but just choose this central located hotel due to it parking space. From the first moment I stepped in I felt welcome from the cheerful staffs! The beds were so comfy, that I didn’t want to leave the room even though the set up was so minimalistic but the room was super clean. The free evening wine on the rooftop was an additional bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

First, the hotel is perfectly located; right on a bus line and easy to walk to different sites. Our room was lovely, comfortable and clean (except for a few little bugs in the bathroom). The bed was comfy and we really enjoyed our stay. Where on earth is there a hotel that offers free ice cream and wine? They also offer free drinking water. Those were great touches. The breakfast is ok. Some days were better than others but most of the time it was underwhelming. The staff were nice to us and we would totally come back and stay.

This would be my 3rd stay here at Chulia Mansion but sadly it disappointed me compared to the previous 2 stays. 1st there are mosquitoes here. I was bitten at least a couple of times each night. You could smell the mosquito repellent along the hallway. Not sure why they couldn’t solve this. Secondly the breakfast was really disappointing. My wife commented that the previous breakfast selections were great and fresh but not this time. The dishes especially the noodles were either dried out or not replenish at all. The remaining selections were not appealing. Very big difference from the last time. I have to say this is a nice hotel with a great location but that’s it. Probably this would be my last time staying there
