My first impression of this hotel is that it looks dark & gloomy. The hotel looks like it never had any renovation to improve its appearance since the 1970s, from the dusty fountain, creaky elevators, everything here looks antique. They had an air conditioning problem since the time i checked in, until around 10PM. I will never recommend this hotel... More

The staffs are friendly & helpful. Location is very good & convenient to shopping center & food court is nearby. The room & corridor is damp & smelly. Room interior need to upgrade. The air condition is not working though I have on it for whole day. Overall, this hotel need to upgrade & refurbish.

The front office staff and the handicapped challenged housekeeper are friendly. The mattress are comfortable. The hotel is located strategically near restaurants, coffee shops and hawker centre. The Aman Central Mall is about 15minutes walk from the hotel. That is all which are the good points for the hotel. This hotel is old and badly in need of a renovation.... More

An old hotel but very good location. We could not assess the free wifi mentioned either in room or at lobby. The television was not in good condition. The hotel pool - average. Not sure will come back here again..

The hotel is situated quite close to the centre and walking to the shops and restaurants is easy enough. The rooms are well appointed and spacious with comfy beds but the service was poor and the food portions when they eventually arrived is enough for a child only. First they could not find my booking, then they had no Coke... More

Family trip last year with booking of 4 of their biggest room. Triple bedded is not too bad but walking space is limited. Hotel looks very old and the only thing holding the hotel together is the staff. Most of them have passion in their work and walk around with a smile. You can really see their sincerely, if only...

when arriving, the front desk staff quit friendly but should learn more about customer service. He should learn which task to prioritize, to entertain the customer in front of him or to answering a lot of phone call or to give an instruction to his buddy. Oh i forget to mention, he just the only person sit at that desk.... More

Hotel has long been in existence and need refurbishment in rooms and restaurant. It gives the impression it is an old hotel by the look from the outside. It is a budget hotel but could have been better if the right things are in place or else hotel would run down and it will lose more customers. It is a... More

The rooms were spacious and the floors were stripped of their carpeting. It was also clean. However, this hotel is really old and it shows. Air conditioning vibrated with such noise, we had to lower the intensity (which are only 3 levels). The toilet had very weak flushing power (yikes!) Curtains were dusty and allowed sunlight to penetrate via gaps.... More

The room was spacious, big.. Far bigger than loads of 3 stars hotels i've been to. Spacious bathroom with bath tub. Affordable price as RM100 / night via Booking.com. However, the air cond. was barely cool. It was quite hot sleeping with comfortable bed, thick blanket but slow air cond.
