Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. Check in was slow with the the staff informing me there is something wrong with my credit card chips and they need to key in the details manually. First impression with the room? Old fashioned, dark and not very well-maintained. The room seemed a little dark for my liking. Instead of the... More

To my expectation, this is what a 5-star hotel should be like. Or maybe it could be better. Anyways, service was good! The staff were really friendly! The only thing I am so not sure of was whether to tip the staff for helping us with our luggage up into the room. The staff overall was really friendly and helpful.... More

I was greeted by the beautiful lights and grand entrance. I thought I had made the right choice. As I walked towards the lift I saw that the hotel won the 2012 Trip Advisor' Travellers' Choice. This can't be a bad choice after all. However, I was disappointed with the rooms. It was dull, not brightly lighted up. It looked... More

Brilliant hotel with mega friendly staff. Hotel pool bar does the best steaks and a quick dip in the pool is well recommended with the heat of Malaysia. Rooms are great. Well maintained with great views. Sauna, steam room and gym is well fitted out and the jacuzzi is spot on. The hotel is 5mins from a bargain hunters paradise....
