    The view from our room

    For conclusion, I would like to say that the overall experience I had in this hotel was excellent. The staff that worked here was very professional and friendly. The morning breakfast was a buffet one, and the variety in cuisines was great. It had different cuisines, and there was also a typical Chinese hotpot, which was very interesting as I had seen it for the very first time. Although, the Indian cuisine had fewer options. This hotel is highly recommended as its location is very central and all the major attractions are very near.
