First and foremost I got a great deal for the room from agoda for the hotel and the rate even includes breakfast for two. The hotel was easy to locate and driving there... More

What kind of explanation is that from the GM about the reason the door is made to lock is only for handicapped or suite rooms. Please provide a better explanation as to how the rest of us who are not handicapped and not staying in a suite by your definition deserves less privacy or any insight into such bizarre arrangement.

This hotel is easy to find, well located, free parking, modern & to a good standard overall. We stayed one night only but did not find any major issues. Room was clean, good size, good controllable aircon, good wifi connection, clean & modern ensuite. As with many Malaysian hotels, the ongoing maintenance is a little slack. The cabinet door housing... More
