The hotel is situated near Balik Pulau area in Bayan Lepas, conveniently for visitors who have business around that area. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around the hotel and there is a 7-Eleven just around the corner from the hotel. Check in was quick and the front desk staffs had no qualms when I requested to change my room between the smoking/non-smoking floors. The room was actually quite spacious and well appointed. Amenities are basic in the room and you get free WiFi internet. The bed was really quite comfortable though, even though the king bed I requested for was just combined from two single beds.
One thing the hotel can improve though is on its breakfast. The coffee lounge where they serve the breakfast is rather small and insufficient to cater to the hotel guests, as I was requested to share a table with other guests. Not that I really mind though because the breakfast spread was nothing to shout about and was limited, mostly with local flairs, so I spent the minimum amount of time there. You'd probably find much better food outside if you care to try.
All in all, the hotel would be a good option for short stays, look for rooms without breakfast though that would save you some money.
