We had a great view of the city, the water from our well appointed room on 17th floor of this modern hotel. Beautiful pool and surrounding area. Restaurants in the hotel good especially the lunch time buffet that gave a great sampling of Malaysian food. The steam and sauna were a nice added extra. the massage service was good. Hotel... More

Very slow in check-in process, counter staff not polite and no greetings, doesn't look like a four-star hotel. The curtains are old and spoilt and make a lot a noise against the glass wall. The morning sun shone directly into my face when the curtain can't closed properly, luckily is only a night stay.

Large hotel 20 mins walk from St Pauls, Christ Church, Jonker Street ( also known as Jalan Hang Jebat) and various museums. Just turn right after leaving the hotel and walk through a large car park. Keep going straight and you will soon see Christ Church. Cross over the river by Hard Rock Cafe and Jonker Street is ahead of... More

The hotel is large and well positioned but seemed to be short of guests. It has a somewhat tired feel about it. Breakfast was average. Rooms offered excellent views towards the sea. Staff were completely charming, polite and warmly welcoming.

Excellent choice of hotel for family tough it is a business hotel. The location was perfect at being not so close and and not far. Everything was nearby, from shopping to sightseeing. Only improvement to the hotel is to include kids menu in the room service menu and the housekeeping. We found some area in the room to be a... More

Location is good. Buffet breakfast was ok. Could be better.. But the issue was...every time we came back to the room at nite, we were locked out as the room key card was not working and had to wait for 15 minutes for the techinian. Seriously need to improve their customer service.

This is a good priced 5 star hotel, however, it is old and quite tired. This hotel has so much potential but it has not been realised. Broken sliding doors (which act as curtains) and a 45 minute wait for pool towel doesn't scream 5 star to me. Overall, I think I'd possibly stay again, but only on a good... More
