The hotel is centrally located, so it's easy to walk everywhere. The rooms are quite small and the aircon in our room took 20 mins to get cold. The TV was not properly tuned. Wifi was pretty slow and the breakfast is not included in our deal, an extra 15 Ringgit. However, everything was clean and we got some juice... More

I have a fascination for new hotels. So needless to say, I book it because it's new. Yah...even the café is not really done up yet. Simple and no frills hotel. The good part is that it is so near to all the malls. We are right next to Mahkota Parade!

I booked a standard double. The room is clean with great amenities: a hairdryer, tea/coffee/kettle, a phone, flat screen TV (English channels have v. bad reception), coat hangers, toothbrush/toothpaste, air and an enclosed shower - so no wet floor! The staff; not so friendly, but helpful enough. Breakfast is available at a nearby restaurant. Many shops and malls nearby, as... More

The hotel is strategically located nearby tourist sites plus its an eco-friendly hotel. The hotel is quite decent and clean but the rooms are quite small. All facilities are working. The staff are very friendly and accommodating too. Breakfast is okay, they have quite a few selection of food. There are bicycles for rent just outside the hotel and is... More

Breakfast was really nice with good options for western as well as Asian with rice, noodles, sausage, chicken, egg and lovely banana cake which was yummy. The location was perfect with 2 huge shopping malls 2 mins away and... More

Clean, simple, modern, great location, very helpful staff, very good bed, cool layout. Nightclub with booming bass can be heard through half the building. No help from front desk on this. 2:30am wednesday night, still waiting for bass to stop so I can sleep. No point in having a good hotel if you can't sleep.
