Check-in was smooth and fast. Two elevators at the end take you to floors 1-7 (standard apartments on 1-6 and duplex style on floor 7), and the basement has a laundry room which is free of charge for guests. The property currently shares facilities with the hotel but will soon feature its own entertainment spaces and a café. There are three categories of apartments: studios (29 to 36 sqm), one bedroom (29 to 43 sqm) and two bedroom duplex (31 to 39 sqm). I had a studio on the fourth floor. These apartments have an open-plan area with a fully fitted kitchen, and a sofa facing a large flatscreen TV. The beautiful decor gives an upscale look. The bathroom is on the luxury end of the scale and features a rain shower and hand-held shower in a spacious cubicle, with large-sized Elemis toiletries and a woven bag filled with toothbrush and toothpaste, mini sewing kit, a comb, hairnet, nail file, earbuds and cotton pads, and a razor with shaving cream. The kitchens are well-equipped for cooking which includes a fridge, microwave oven, an induction hob, toaster, Opal coffee machine, kettle. There are two complimentary glass bottles of water, milk sachets in the fridge, Avantcha tea , coffee pods and milk satchels . Breakfast is served in the Jin Bar, just off the lobby area. Aside from the buffet, you can also order one hot dish from an à la carte menu.
