We stayed there about 2 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This time we were glad that we only stayed one night. The hotel has new management and new staff - and it has not improved anything at all. Note that it is now a halal hotel and so with no alcohol available at all, the opportunity to sit on their lovely riverside terrace and enjoy the cool of the evening together with a drink has gone Sipping a soft drink is not the same! The rooms are still large and good bathrooms but parts of the hotel are looking tired, our room in parts could have been cleaner and I did not like what seemed to be black mould in our shower cubicle. Plus the new staff - certainly in and around the front reception - seem indifferent to guests. It would have been nice to have got a 'Welcome' on arrival and not just an enquiring look. Plus a 'Good Morning' is certainly not on their agenda. Not What It Was.

We booked this hotel for the good position in the cultural heritage area and because the rooms have a decent balcony. The building itself is part of the Chinese heritage area so exploring the neighborhood is easy done by foot. Walking along the river on the backside of the hotel is very pleasant and it take you right into the historic centre. Loads of bars and restaurants around with a wide variety of local food. The rooms are very big but the hotel itself is in need of a renovation, the interior is worn out and furniture is outdated. The personnel is not really enthousiast, it is obvious that they don't care. The breakfast is better to take somewhere else, poor coffee and very basic choice of fixed menu. This hotel could be really better as it has good potential being inside the heritage area. Unfortunately the owner doesn't invest in making this an excellent stay. The cheap plastic seatings on their terrace on the river side doesn't really add to the experience either. This hotel definitely needs improvement, it is a pity for such a nice location. I would still recommend this hotel if your expectations of service and interior design is not too high.

I looked for room of river view and booked on this hotel. I intended to reserve the best room on Agoda, but the room was narrower than I expected, and the balcony was a fence, so the view of the river was not so good. The location was very convenient as it was a walking garden in the tourist center. Because it was a weekday reservation, there was no other customers and the hotel itself was not lively. リバービューの部屋を探していてこのホテルに決めました。一番良い部屋を予約したつもりでしたが、部屋は思ったより狭く、バルコニーも柵が壁のため川の眺めはイマイチでした。ロケーションは観光中心地に徒歩園だったので非常に便利でした。平日予約だったため他のお客さんもいなくホテル自体に活気がなかった印象です。

Despite the awesome location and astonishing outlook of the hotel building, it's high time for a serious upkeep in this hotel internally. But we booked two rooms; one room was having a peeling and mossy wall, another was having bad smell. the furniture obviously worn out with stains visible in the bathroom/showers.
