The overall was alright; well, it seems that the room wasn't ready to be rented to customers as it is real bad in shape. All can be seen in the photos as per attached. I didn't file an complaint to the hotel, as it's only my 5 hours stay there, so I shall bare with it. Totally not recommended for... More

My second stay here. Friendly staff, big rooms, love the buffet breakfast. It'll be good if the gym has more bar-bells and dumb-bells but I guess it's good enough for a holiday work-out. I even got my hair cut at the hairdressers which is located outside of the gym. There are a couple of good bars and lounges at the... More

Was here for a short business trip and found this hotel has quite a good facilities. Room was of a good size, aircond working well with a good dining place. The turnoff was how the bed was made with unevenly made bedsheets. It was like someone rushed through the process. Toilet leaked and the showers didn't work. WIFI is free... More

It's close to KSL; a shopping mall about 10 mins walk. Directly behind the hotel is a hawker stall. You will be able to find some food to your liking there. The rooms are average. A bit on the old side. Maybe I might consider coming back here when I am in Johor.

We booked on of the 2 family rooms with 2 large and well-appointed with 2 large queen sized beds in each of the 2 bedrooms. The bathrooms were similarly well-appointed with a shower cubicle and separate bath. The buffet breakfast was extensive but they do get a lot of customers between 8 and 9 am so we had to wait...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days and it's very relaxing. Small but nice pool, wide lobby, big rooms, awesome food, nice staff. Good to escape a busy life in Singapore for a short period of time! We'll be back here for sure!

Checking in at the Lobby is a usual 1-2-3 step and you get the Key handed over. On the 7th July 2015, I arrived around 6pm, checked in and it last forever as there is a Trainee who was at my desk, together with his junior. As time was 6pm, I asked what time the Restaurant was open for dinner,... More

The hotel is close to KSL and Pelangi malls. Breakfast spread was good. However, the non smoking floors still smell of tobacco and the hotel smells musky, probably need to change n upkeep their carpets some. Pool was small but functional, gym was ok. For the price, an acceptable place for short stay.
