It is believed to have been constructed more than 80 years ago. It is especially important as an example of a very early shop house prototype.

It is a best accommodation for travelers who seeking for budget heritage stay. The design integrates old with new, modern with historic, ensuring that the total experience is one that is authentic, honouring the past while bringing every modern convenience to bear. Let's explore the heritage and find your old time memory here!
