    Good service, good room, good location. The interior of the hotel is nice...checking in was fast and easy. It is located at the town centre...however they are not many restaurants surrounding the area so you have to get a cab to try local eateries.

    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.
