Receptions nice, rooms very glooming and don't feel so clean. No even a fridge inside. Air con was there somewhere, but wasn't the best. The bathroom, shower and toilet the best part, clean and good water flow. The Worst things, wifi... truly the worst I have experienced and they should be embarrassed. Didn't even load a page. One important thing...

The receptionist is friendly; you have to make 30RM deposit if you stay here, not a problem.

Finally I request for another room, the new room is better but unfortunately the electrical outlet is not...

As what the title of my review states about, everything is fine; room is clean, staff are friendly, service is great, bed is comfortable, water pressure is strong, amenities are enough, EXCEPT the Wifi.

It's a comfortable budget hotel in a convenient location. Walking distance to food centers area. Bus stop to Komtar bus terminal and Loh Guan Lye Specialists Centre is just a cross the hotel. Water dispenser (hot and cold). Wifi available but the connection not so stable. Kindly and helpful staff from front office to cleaning service. The one that annoying...

It was disappointing because we had requested for a room with window. Our room didn't have any.... room was small and was in the corner... Thankfully, we were out most of the time and back to sleep only, but would have been more welcoming to a room with window after a long day out... Several eateries on Macalister road was...

I'm a person who is very picky on hotels when it comes to cleanliness. This hotel offers clean and comfortable room for guests. Their staff also attends to guest attentively.
