We stayed in the Silka Hotel for just one night before boarding a flight early the next morning to Borneo, and what a shame that was! The hotel was perfect, the deluxe double we stayed in was spacious, cool, exactly what we wanted! The balcony offered some great views to. Only had chance to visit the swimming pool once for...

After we moved everything we received cAll to say only first night complimentary and we would have to pay for other three nights. Could not help with tickets for Legoland or Universal.... More

what you see in photo is not all hotel. Most is residences. After requesting rooms together for children to be close, rooms were apart. After speaking to reception they were nice enough to upgrade us but then rang 15 minutes after we settled and said we would need to pay an upgrade fee when the word " complimentary" had been...

For a less than rm100 you are able to stay in their standard room inclusive for breakfast. Mediocre buffet breakfast spread but worth for a short visit. Staff was also friendly. However, there wasn't any floormap and hairdryer provided.

I was attending an exhibition in Singapore and decided to spend the night in JB instead of driving back to KL. Although it was late, the online booking was fast and immediately confirmed. The hotel car park is actually a next door condominium car park. I have to go up to the 4th floor (hotel guest parking lot) and have... More

For your hotel, I give reviews are good, and even introduced to my friend.
