    Room is basic but for RM60 for an A/C room is quite a good deal. We stayed at the smaller branch above pasta pasta restaurant and all rooms can fit 4 people. Not sure if same price will be given for more than 2 pax....More

    No shampoo, no towel, terrible breakfast. Location is OK, but there are more places around there to stay. First morning, they serve only a pack of cornflakes and instant coffee pack, while second morning, nothing was served.
