Near hawker centers and attractions but staff gives poor service. Noisy rooms if you face the street. Safety deposit box at front desk and not in room. Hotel in need of reno. Breakfast buffet is OK: mix of western and Chinese. I May stay again.

The room is spacious enough for a family of six (2 adults and 4 young children). Slight old but clean enough. For around RM200 you get a 2 double beds room. Lots of hawker centres within walking distant, sufficient parking. Everything you need is conveniently provided. The pool too small and not exciting. Breakfast was enough, not fancy not great...

The rooms are large and well appointed with kettle, refrigerator, TV and free WiFi. The staff are friendly and the restaurant provides a good Asian breakfast. The hotel is well situated within easy walking distance of the old town

Very basic hotel..just bed, no extra pillows available when requested, TV channels not clear, 1 small soap in the bathroom, slow but free wifi and so so breakfast. That's about it. Very old hotel. Need renovation obviously. It's located in a very good location at Macalister Rd nevertheless. Plenty of food stalls nearby. If you just need a bed to... More
