Stayed in this hotel from 15th till 18th sept. Did not expect much from this hotel. But, based on the location advantage, I certainly would advise the management to upgrade this ageing hotel. Breakfast is dull. Very limited choices. No proper gym room available. Gym is located next to the pool with a mere 4 or 5 equipments which are... More

Though the hotel is a bit old, but the room is up to standard, comfortable and the price is reasonable. Shopping malls, restaurants and night market are nearby. At night can strolled along the sea front right in front of the hotel.

The first surprise was the size of the room which got me tongue tied. It was soo big and spacious that it could have easily accommodated 4 adults. The swimming pool which is situated at the seventh floor was out of this world.The view and scenery from the pool was unforgettable.

Spacious room & bathroom. Located within walking distance to Gurney Plaza, Gurney drive for local delights. However, design and overall furnishing is old and worn. Renovation is a must! If you are not looking for trendy, hip & nice designed hotel, this is your choice!

We check in even though we read the bad review. Check in is fast & that is a good sign. Basement parking lot is a bit gloomy & limited. We managed to get a spot there. We were given the suite & it was big. My kid love the space. But when we turn on the air conditioning system we... More
