I stayed in the room most of the time as we had traveled far. Room service was okay. A little pricey but nothing unusual for hotels. The... More

A place for business traveller. Quiet place but a bit out of the place. Breakfast wasn't that good although considered a high class hotel. Staff wasn't that friendly. Not much entertainment. For room rates a bit on the high side and aircon in rooms & wifi not good enough

We had booked the family package to Legoland (Malaysia) on 05.09.2014 and had extended our stay for one more night. We had a family room on the first night and a deluxe room for the second night. The family room was spacious and super nice view. The kitchen had all the utensils for light cooking. The deluxe room had the... More

Nice enough hotel. But what makes this hotel great is the staff. Especially the guys in the Oasis! Top service. Never had an empty drink and food is the best. Thank you Shah, Fazzuan, Akmal, Haziq, Fauzi and Sekar for making me feel welcome.

This hotel has been refurbished but looks aged. The restaurants are pricey, but for the lack of any eateries which are walkable, there is no choice. This hotel is strictly for business travelers and those who have business at the hospital
