As a lounge operated by Walkerhill, the buffet is delicious, and the atmosphere is quiet and comfortable. Having a seat for one person was good. It was a pity that the time in the lounge was short.

I’ve only used the regular lounge, so this time, I went to the premium one and felt very pleased. The regular lounge is good, but if you come in during peak hours, it’ll be packed with people.
