Did not stay in this hotel, only visited their Sky Lounge. This is my second visit to Sky Lounge in less than 2 months. Located on the 26 storey and can only be accessible by 2 out of 3 lifts on the ground floor if there is only 3 lifts which I know of. You can exit the Sky Lounge... More

An old hotel which needs an upgrade. Conveniently located with Tesco nearby. Food at their Cafe Para Para has a wide breakfast spread but the incident whereby two other guests were smoking away spoilt an otherwise pleasant stay. This is a hotel that I will never revisit!

Quite worn out room condition. The breakfast buffet is excellent tough. Easy access to the JB nightlife and food place. Not far from the city centre. The gym is also at an acceptable condition. The main thing, they need to refurbish the room as a whole

First the good things: An excellent mutton curry in the ground floor restaurant/cafe as part of the Ramadan buffet special. This is very popular with locals so people watching is good but it is a bit noisy, service was good though, even with all those people. The male staff appear friendly and helpful although I didn't see one of the... More

Disappointed - 1) The check-in was supposed to at 3pm but by the time we waited until 3:45pm, our 2 connecting bedrooms were not ready. So we requested to get other rooms but on same level instead. The frontline staffs also did not bother to inform us when the rooms could be given to us. We just sat at the... More

Centrally located but at a considerable driving distance from the JB airport and PTP if you are staying in there for purpose of joining ships. The restaurant is decent and a good bakery too. Rooms were average size and with a good view of the city.

We stayed at this hotel in order to take the kids to Legoland (before the Legoland Hotel had opened up). Upon check in, our 2 bedroomed suite had a few issues as we were situated on a high floor and the music from the disco upstairs woke everyone up. Management gave us another, which was dusty and smelled abit musty.... More
