The very first thing I noted was the shops that were around the hotel. Lots of food outlets to choose from. Many shopping options as well. From pharmacies to departmental stores. Very convenient! Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Bathroom amenities were basic but sufficient. Coffee making facility was very fancy. But sadly no plain coffee. Only 3-in-1. So if... More

Stayed for one night. Shower and bed were decent, staff were pretty friendly. We were placed in the smoking floor and the first thing I noticed when moving in and waking up in the morning was the awful cigarette smell.

Over my expectations. I booked this hotel cos I intend to arrive JB late for supper and I have no intention to pay premium for a bed. Check in and check out is fast although the computer hanged briefly. Deposit is only 50rm unlike many others. Basic amenities like toothbrush, shampoo and soap are provided. Shower and heater works perfectly.... More

The room was big enough. But the rooms smell is awful. And the breakfast buffet was complete and good. Only the reception girl was not polite at all. Unpleasant and poor attitude. The hotel located near with LEGOLAND. And this is the only reason i choose this hotel.

Good value for your money but don´t expect too much. Rooms are dark but clean. Staff here is nice. Location is good and it´s easy to walk to eat here or just take a taxi to centre. There was a good wifi in a room.
