It's our second time staying at this hotel and both stays were pleasant enough for us. We usually travel with our four year old and he loves his trips to the pool. Big note is there's NO POOL in this hotel. If you're looking for a nice clean place to stay with basic amenities this is it. There's a nice... More

The hotel and its rooms are very very simply furnished, nothing special and a bit expensive for what was offered. However the staff were friendly, and some laundry which we needed for the same day was expertly done and punctually delivered at the time promised. We did not have breakfast, so I can't judge it, but when we asked about... More

I've stayed at a few hotels in JB and this one has friendly staff and good restaurant plus plenty of parking space. Also the rooms are much much bigger than I expected. Prices are low and I'm glad its not a hotel where tour buses stay at. Obviously you have to go in with the right expectations, so there was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. For its price, the hotel offers good value. But rooms cleanliness should be improved and breakfast selection needs to be added too. Location is okay at the danga bay but quite a distance to the town center. A cab will cost around 10RM each way. Overall, an okay stay, nothing special.
