Stayed for 1 night... checked-in around 1am. The last time I stayed here was in 2008. Not much different. Highlights: Receptient - should improve as the receptient could not understand malay Room - nice, clean, aircond+ceiling fan. Parking - no problem, lots of it Breakfast - ok, got the usual choices Price - so-so. My thoughts, should pay less... Overall,... More

Terrible room in the "new" wing. Full of bathroom mold. Hot water barely available in a piddling stream. Also, be careful, the old wing does not have WiFi, just cable Internet access. Worst issue cam at check in. The staff were hopeless, and totally inflexible. Bad experience overall. Breakfast was a good attempt.

I was staying here due to a week-long business trip and the staff are appalling slow and incompetent - it took 20 minutes for them to check me in. They took a long time to process my deposit, write individual breakfast sheets and look-up my reservation. After a flight, the wait was appalling and I would have shouted at them... More

Personally i think the hotel location is good for people who need a little quiet time and less trafic. This hotel is not in the Island but in mainland. Check-in was first and the hotel did not charge additional for let us check-in early (we checked in around 10am)...the tricky part is to go to your room either from the... More

Had meeting and the company chosen this hotel as their venue. This hotel is located conveniently near to the shops in order for us to get some common items easily. Besides that, the lobby is quite spacious but the drive way is a bit small. Road signs should be used extensively to avoid us to go in a circle to... More

Overall, the room is very dated. The hotel have a policy that you will need to check in and use your room card to access the car park. Hotel guests park at levels 5 and 6. There is an entrance directly to the floor's rooms from the parking. You will still need to do a bit of walking to reach... More
