Stayed for 5 nights for training. The room was ok, a bit smelly (damp), the uneven floor of the toilet causing the water to stay there forever. Not sure bout smoking zone, coz the whole floor (21st) is smelly. WIFI at rooms are charged RM15 for 24hours - something I not look forward into. The furnitures - 90s with classic... More

generally quite spacious and price are reasonable to short getaway to JB. but still got room for improvement in term of those furniture, TV, bathtub etc. can get more promotion to attract public as you hav a good location to gain a market share compare to new york hotel, grand paragon which located deeper than you.

The moment my family and I stepped into the room, there's that damp toilet smell. There were many bugs or cockroach nymphs crawling at the every crevices... killed so many... when I called for their housekeeping, the staff said that they have ran out of insecticide! I couldn't sleep in peace. The moment I switched off the lights, more nymphs... More

This was a last minute trip so I booked online and for the price I got a fair deal. To begin with, yes, the hotel is old and certainly looks it. There was a kinda musky smell in the room, the furniture all looks dated, you get a 14' CRT TV with not much channel selection, and even then some... More

May be due to hotel ages. But that's not a problem to me as long as the room was comfortable its good enough for... More

The hotel room is spacious but it's very dusty. The carpets are dirty, the bathroom is dirty. Even the cups at the buffet were dirty. The ac was too cold and the temperature could not be controlled. The facilities in the hotel were substandard. I would never stay in this hotel again.
