The satay was the best we had on the entire trip. We thought the meal... More

The hotel is a standard 5 stars hotel, located in the center area with good access to most of the heritage sites and shopping are within walking distance. The room is equipped with standard facilities and we'll keep. The welcome fruits and sweets is good and presentable. The breakfast choices is good and taste well.
