Excellent location, especially for business/EU/government functions. Very convenient. Tons of stuff is walking distance. Common areas are tastefully decorated. Service is friendly and competent. Rooms are good sized and well furnished. Bath/shower combo. Clean and excellent isolation for good night sleep. Few negatives, so it is really 4.5 stars, not quite 5, alas! -too expensive for the value provided; -shower stall is extremely small, so it is not comfortable and relaxing to take a shower; -front desk is understaffed, so it takes too long to check in/out, even for Platinum Members. All is all, quite pleasant stay

Nice and cozy place, everything clean, friendly English speaking staff, and great location. There is a delicious ramen place and a great coffee shop right in front and a Carrefour is only 5 min walk away. Really nice continental breakfast buffet. Overall great hotel for business trip
