“Business Class Of Its Own; Truly For Reason!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2010

Stayed here for a night and was of good value for money. A no frills hotel that touts itself as a "Business Class Hotel Of Its Own", and I Can't agree more! It truly IS in a class of its own with an unmade guest room that greeted me at check-in, a leaking cistern and shower tap, torn and abused room furnishings and stained, grimey carpets. Breakfast was quite delightful, though, with an array of local malaysian food. However, I won't return to this hotel anytime soon for as long as I can help it!

Location is superb with its close proximity to Pelangi Mall and quaint Malaysian 'tsz char' places. There are numerous food stalls that line the street where the hotel is sited, too!

The hotel was clean, except for the electric kettle which was quite dirty. When we called for service, we had to wait for about 20 minutes or so. Another thing is that our room did not have hot water. So we had to bathe in cold water. They have pool and gym, which is good. Food at coffee garden was okay...had to pay RM20++ for the buffet. And they served sausages, rendang (malay style beef), omelet, eggs, bread, wedges and so on. Not very worth it. Some food was cold too. Good location, near to shopping malls, pubs, disco, mignight stalls, car wash, bus stops, and its across the road frm a police station.

Probably a hotel for the business traveller. Not much frills in this hotel, no luxury. Very average. Clean rooms, fair food, well priced, good location. Don't expect great customer service or facilities.

  • Liked — Location. You get what you pay for - average value for money
