very old hotel, the problem is they look like don't want to replace the carpet room who knows how old already. Breakfast only pay 15 rm, but nothing to eat . the reason I stay here because it is located in front of the Adventist hospital, it's easy if you had to take your family for treatment.

I stayed in the super single room, most of the room was taken up by the bed and not much space left to do anything else. The water pressure is good but noisy (to the point that you know when the person is the room next door is having his / her shower - I KID YOU NOT!) Check in... More

This hotel showing its age a little, rooms were comfortable but the bed was not! (where do they get the rocks to fill the mattress?) Front staff were pleasant enough but did not know much about local amenities Its a fair distance from old georgetown, 30-40 ringit by cab. There are two large malls within 15min walking time which offer... More

The hotel has aged, used to call Berjaya Hotel. Location is out of town and next to a pathetic mall that is on the brink of closing down. Service from staffs were pleasant but the room has aged. The coffee house buffet breakfast was acceptable but with limited choice. Good for a short stay. Prices are quite reasonable for a... More

No flexibility for early check in despite several reminders were given. Requested for king size bed during booking and check in but was given 2 single bed room without given any solid reasons. No towels were provided but just 2 pcs of small "handkerchief".

This is probably the worst service for a 3 star hotel that I have stayed by far. First of all, we were never told about the deduction of our deposit (RM 3 local government fess per room) during check-out, so you can imagine our surprise then. What I observed on numerous occasions, is that the front office staff never seem... More

The staffs who attended our check-out are very rude, the reception is actually empty when we arrived to check-out. My friend asked one of the staff why there are dance music playing all night long, it's noisy and disturbing. The staff didn't apologize and just briefly said she'll inform someone. Our room is fully paid when we booked thru agoda,... More

Most of the guests are patients or family's patients, or something like that, related to Aventist. I think there is highly dependencies this hotel related to Aventist. Room was quite nice. Not too much... More

I stayed in the property for 6 nights. Rooms are spacious. Nice location. Room service is good. I stayed on 24th floor. View from the room was very nice. Breakfast wasn't that great. But overall I would recommend this property for a medium budget holiday.
