The hotel is good for the price, even though the locale has little to recommend it except it's convenient for JB Sentral and the crossing to Singapore. The hotel was clean and the staff helpful. There are a couple of acceptable local Chinese restaurants, for eating (the hotel doesn't do food or drink). Mine was a brief (one night) stay.... More

Some hotels go that little extra distance and provide you with a little photocopied map of how best to get into the city centre.Where its best to eat locally, for different types of food,where best to go for breakfast. It makes all the difference.It costs the hotel nothing and it shows they care about their clientele. This is not one... More

The rooms were clean, well presented and quiet. Note that we had an internal room with no window so cannot comment for those with a window onto the street. The rooms are not large, but for the money you pay, for JB, they are great. You can get a lot worse for a lot more in this city. It is... More
