Hotel is spacious, clean with buffet breakfast. Excellence service as well, only downside was we can hear very clearly the kids running upstairs throughout our stay.

Few steps away from the hotel are eateries and further down is the shopping district Xin Jue Jiang.

Spotted Rabbit cafe recommended by 食尚玩家 so came in here to grab a late lunch! It was definitely good!

We also went to the night markets that are all conveniently located near the MRT stations.
