We were booked for a superior king room, with oh-so-lovely mattress. There are extra pillows, and sufficient supply of coffee instamix, and cup noodles - we don't get that often in budget hotels. Upon entering the room, there's a sink. Weird, but quite convenient, so that you don't need to go to the bathroom to wash your cup etc. This... More

Stayed here for second time and does not disappoint. I booked thru Agoda for 1 night stay. Sleep quality is good and the bathroom size is good too. The only negative point is that the bathroom sink is somehow placed right after the main entrance door and outside the bathroom. So you gotta be careful so as not to wet... More

Room was a bit run down - paint peeling, hole in curtain, tear in bed skirting. Not sure about the glass windows in the toilet - not frosted enough. If you're sharing a room with a colleague it would be uncomfortable that you can semi view your room mate on the can. Rain shower is a plus point, toilet amenities... More

I stayed here for a night and it it was alright. Paid RM90 a night for twin bed room, the room basically has a TV, free-wifi, comfy bed & pillows, hot shower works just fine and size of the room is not an issue for me as you got what you paid. Other than that, I didnt ask for any... More

Despite I get some bad reviews about this hotel,lucky for me I had a perfect and wonderful experience staying here. Clean bathroom,perfect water temperature, helpful and friendly staff,comfy bed,not complaining about the air conditioning. Plus point for the complementary instant noodles,differ from other hotels. Although the room is a bit small,but enough space for solat. Would come back again..

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and I personally like it for what it is, a basic no frills business hotel. I would give it 3 out of 5 stars, bear in mind it doesn't do breakfast like the bigger hotels do and doesn't come with everything a 5 star does. I had a host... More

The rooms are tiniest i have been in. And i booked a double room! There wasnt even space to sit and watch tv. We had to lie on the bed. When i complained the reception just said "write in with yr complaint". I dont know why people actually gave good reviews to this hotel. The pictures on the web LIE!

My client booked this hotel for me while I was on business trip to Alor Setar. This is the second time I stay here, it is a very friendly hotel solely for the sake of sleeping after a long day in the office. No fancy breakkie as they don't have their own cafe or restaurant, they do however provide cup... More

This hotel is very conveniently located next to the 7 Eleven, walking distance Tesco and some other food stall. Check-in was improved and faster than the previous time, room is basically modern and the best part I liked is their strong & hot rain shower though the lighting in the shower room is a little dark / dim. Basically this... More
