Checked in on the 13th Feb 2015 room 214. Nice room. Spacious. Good amenities, Loved the rain shower! A hassle free check in. Really good staying experience. Sure, the pool isn't in the same vicinity as the hotel itself. But it's only like 1 minute walk. Same goes for parking. Can't complain :D The restaurant is okay. Buffet was good.... More

Comfortable and reasonably clean, though furnishing a bit old. Breakfast decent, did not try the pool. Friendly and helpful staff. Bad: Taxi can be an issue, but can use app like MyTeksi and...

It was my second stay, the services improved a lot from the first. Service in front office is excellent and so as the room, it's clean though. You guys would surely love this hotels environment, a little away from JB city's hustle and bustle.....
