Room price was appropriate based on Alor Setar standard & it is strategically located in the town centre with plenty of car parks with plenty of... More

A newly renovated hotel and loved it as everything was new. Lifts were working well, shower was strong, rooms were clean, lobby was nice. Complimentary breakfast was a plus with a simple yet sufficient choices. Central location in Alor Setar also helps, Only setback was the TV which was not working well.

Although the hotel has been renovated, the standard is still very poor. I stayed at a 3-star hotel with much better facilities. Our deluxe room has no bathtubs, and still has a small CRT TV... More

Agreed with earlier review that air-con... More
