    Clean room in Chinatown
    The room was clean and had good aircon. We were just staying the night before a flight out the next evening. Front desk had luggage storage for $2 per bag that we used after we checked out. Staff was friendly and helpful when asking about the area. Our room was ready 1 hour before check-in so we were able to check in early. We took a shuttle ($22 pp for Redy2Go) to and from hotel/Airport.
