Stayed 3 nights recently on a short getaway trip. The property is located right on batu ferringi beach with two buildings connected by a overhead bridge. We stayed in the ferringi tower opposite to the beach in a sea view balcony room which i feel is worth the price as the views are great. However since the property is getting...

On checking in, we were shown to our room, which was not facing the sea as booked and also the rooms looked quite tired and dated. The restaurant is nice as was the breakfast. The hotel is situated on the main road and so has easy access to a whole host of different types of shops and restaurants.

What a brilliant hotel. Staff food room all excellent. The only reason it's not 5 stars is the noise from the road which is accepted,but a better form of double glazing may have helped. Constant motor cycle noise and the tricycle taxis with there imitation police sirens all night long. The view from the room was brilliant. We had a...

I arrived at 4, but was told that my room is not ready. I was supposed to get my room ready at 2. I only planned on staying here for a day. It cut down my time spent on the beach as I was put in the guest room to wait for about an hour. I can't go to the...
