We had such a lovely experience staying at Macalister hotel from check in to our departure. The hotel was clean and minimalist that I had wanted and expected. A lot of local foods stands/courts around as well as being close by the street art (10 mins walking for me). Worth the stay :). Big thanks to the both check in and out FD agents!

Newly furbish hotel that is clean and comfortable, the only drawback is the limited parking spots.
