The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is walking distance to Jonker and the shopping malls. The service staff were very friendly and efficient on check-in and check-out. I stayed in what looked like a newly renovated room because it looked very modern. This was a huge contrast to the toilet in the room that looked like... More

It is supposed to be a five star hotel but i felt that the rooms and facilities doesn't reflect that. The rooms are quite small and at first glance, it looks pretty neat and clean but on closer inspection, there are black marks on my bed linen that resembles part of a shoeprint. There are also some yellow stains on... More

Located right next to a huge mall, this hotel will appeal to shopaholics. It's near to Jonker street where you'll find weekend night market & good food.

I spend one night in this hotel. My first choice is actually Holiday Inn but booked this hotel instead as Holiday Inn is full. At the end I am glad that I choose this hotel. The hotel location is very convenient for a first time visitor with family like me, it is adjacent to a major shopping mall and within... More
