Overall is a nice clean budget hotel that is just walking distant from restaurant and popular local “Tau Sa Piah” shop. Parking is limited however the staffs are friendly to help out if it is full and will direct to other area to park. Would be better if there is bicycle for rent ;)

For the return trip to the airport, we caught the 401E bus from lane 5 of the Komtar bus terminus. We... More

Nice and comfortable hotel. The location is great as well. Hawkers stall and shopping mall are 5 minute away. Room are small but comfortable enough. The room are clean. The staff and security guard are friendly. The only complaint is the limited parking space. Overall is a great hotel for a short stay.Recommended!!
