Must say i was shocked, to find this bad a place after reading others reviews. The rooms are small, durty moldy bathroom. The wifi dont work in the rooms, I wouldnt recomend any one staying here. The toilet had leftover s..t in it. By the attached pictures you can see the stains in the room chair.

Stayed there for three nights, hotel staff was very accommodate and gave me a lake view room, the room was spacious and clean. The great swimming pool with the lake is very relaxing, suit for couple or family.

Buses and taxis can be found in front of Ampang Point. Menu was a bore after the 2 days ( was there for 10)...hope there will be some... More

Reading the amount of bad reviews posted it's obvious the Management doesn't care what its guests think so why bother adding another review? I wanted to just forget about this place and my stay there but how do I just keep quiet and let it go when I've never ever experienced such unashamedly appalling standards. From the moment I arrived... More

The ground floor is an open car park. Chalet rooms are not joined to the main hotel building, & are located... More

Bathroom smelled like bad cheese. 2. cockroaches in my bathroom! 3. the sink was clogged from the first night itself. had to scoop the water out for the other two nights. 4. the balcony looks like it...

Nice and clean hotel, food average and the breakfast restaurant was not managed by the hotel so the duty managers were not able to assist us on the poor quality of the food and forced us to pay for food that we couldn’t eat

Stayed one night as woman from UK travelling alone. Lovely welcome. Very helpful staff. Lots of room service choice. Room spotless. Wifi signal not great in room but good in public areas. Enjoyed watching the big monitor lizards swimming in the lake right in middle of city!
