Affordable place, outdated decor and furniture. Very friendly floor personnel, reception helps with whatever you may throw at them, starting from organising taxi to slicing up pineapples brought from the longhouse. Taxi run from the airport costs 25-26 ringgit. Hindu temple next door tends to creat some noise during ceremonies, but it only takes a minute to actually get to... More

The thing that make this hotel interesting is none other than the service...the staff. It is them that make all things difference in the hotel. Although some may view it as a "3 star" hotel or below..but with its top notch friendly staff..the hotel ranking definitely worth more than that. The food is average..but at least my stomach is full... More

The decoration and ambience of this hotel is really dated. Room doors are still opened by a key latched to a huge plastic tag that is to be slotted into a panel on the wall for electricity in the room !! Brings back nostalgic feelings ... Although dated and in desperate need of refurbishment to better compete with the newer... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights, the room was large and clean. Staff were friendly but the wifi disconnected and the aircon is abit out of date so its not very cool! The breakfast is good. I would recommend it if you want a more luxury stay in Kch!

Just pop in and check-in. The staffs are always friendly. Check-in was quick and off to the room. The room is spacious. The furnitures can be seen as aging and carpet is in need of changing otherwise everything is fine. Bed is good to sleep in. Located just in the city, hence food is everywhere.

Location-wise, this is not highly recommended especially if you don't have your own mode of transportation. Room was ok, view was ok and that's about it. Breakfast was just something to eat. I'd prefer to go to Chinatown for the mee kolok.
