Efficient and helpful front desk staff. The room might be a touch dated, but is very clean, good bathroom facilities. The bed is a bit firm. We were upgraded to a deluxe with a good view of the E&O and the water. The buffet breakfast was really good. Don't however go for Roti, as they aren't freshly cooked to order.... More

Stayed here for a night on my trip to Malaysia and had booked the room before going there. The reservation, enquiries etc were well handled and no problem at all faced! I got a standard room via an in-house deal for MYR231. The room was clean and all the amenities in the room were working fine too. Would definitely stay... More

Upon arrival no assistance (carrying three large bags into hotel with two porters watching me) or welcom by anyone. Front desk agents was cold and unfriendly at checkin and checkout.

Good location with friendly helpful staff. Room was functional but bed comfortable. We left several items behind and they kindly couriered them to our hotel in Kuala Lumpur - my only complaint was that the expensive headphones I left behind in the room were never found! Overall tho we would stay here again on our next visit.

overall great experience at this hotel! Clean rooms, and they had to move us, construction and busy road on one side. Nice deep pool, probably for scuba training. A great rooftop bar and restaurant, with beer specials that are reasonable. Great view. The breakfast was terrible though, not enough N. American selection. Walking distance to the Indian and Chinese Districts,... More
