Firstly, this hotel should come up with an online version of rooms reservation and payment. The manager was kind enough to allow me to pay upon arrival, although I had informed him that I would be arriving late on the day. I did arrive at 8pm, to find out that the manager was on vacation, there was only one room... More

We booked one family and one standard room during chinese new year. I would commend the staff for handling advance reservations extremely well by reconfirming our booking once they received the advance payment. However the hotel is extremely run down. The staircase smells the evening we checked in. Both rooms were stuffy and musty. I could not use my hair... More

I have stayed here two years in a row. This time for six weeks. Well located near Gardens. Twenty minute walk to zoo. Thirty five to both Coronation and Burmese pools as well as jeeps to go up Maxwell hill. Five minutes to town centre and three to yummy food courts. GREAT staff. The hot water works after a fashion... More

We decided to book 2 rooms here during the Chinese New Year as the better hotels were fully booked. Unfortunately that turned out to be a mistake. While we weren't expecting much for the price that we paid, we did hope the the room was in better shape after reading positive reviews about the place. Disappointingly our room was stuffy,... More

My family and I stayed there for 4 nights during the cny week. Have stayed in both rm 402 and 407. Rooms are relatively clean and beds are comfortable. However, the toilet at 402 is not so good as the door cannot be locked and there is no hooks or holder in it to hang clothes or towel when bathing.... More

It's a flea pit with cockroaches as well. Dirty and bug ridden I am still itching from the experience. Very noisy clientele and the management don't respond to issues. Do not stay unless you like sharing your room with insects and being kept awake ALL night!

My family stayed at Room 208, Sept 16. 2012. Big room with 2 queen size beds firm and clean sheets for RM93 per night . Over looking the restaurant opposite the hotel.

Hotel close to Lake Garden and 24 hours food court. Room very clean and spacious. Try to avoid stay at higher floor as hotel no lift.
