It is close to 中山國小(Zhongshan Elementary School) station by MRT, and there is a night market near the hotel.

Also Aloft provides Keyless function, same as other W hotels, you can use a smartphone app as the room key.

Put your smartphone to the reader on the room and the lift.

Mind you, you need to turn the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on to use it.

Speed

I measured at three separate times, as follows :

At around 19.00

aloft_tpe_wifi_speed_19h
Uploading : 8.39Mbps
Downloading : 7.08Mbps

Quite good, fast speed.

At around 22.00

aloft_tpe_wifi_speed_22h
Uploading : 8.40Mbps
Downloading : 9.64Mbps

It’s faster than earlier, lovely!

At around 7.00

aloft_tpe_wifi_speed_7h
Uploading : 6.08Mbps
Downloading : 8.53Mbps
 
Although it is slower than at 22.00, still downloading speed exceeded 8 Mbps.

Conclusion

It was no problem as for the speed.

However…

I got disconnected many times, it was awful.

My British wife also got irritated and said ‘なんだよこれ(Rubbish)!’ in Japanese ^^;
 
It would be better if the the hotel realised this problem and resolve it as soon as possible.

So I answered their survey after our stay.
