As soon as we stepped into the room, we knew we had made the right choice for a hotel to stay in for 5 nights. The room looked almost brand new and was big enough for 2 queen beds and a single, perfect for a family of 5 adults. It was really clean ( a must for us!)
Someone had put his/her thinking cap on when designing the bathroom and came up with the idea of putting up a wall between the toilet and the shower so that the two could be used separately. Brilliant!
The downside: The construction right outside the window. We got the corner family room on the 2nd floor and so got some of the noise. But kudos to the construction company, their work is the quietest I have ever heard! Thankfully they don't work at night. Other reviewers suggested getting a higher floor or one that faces the back.
Also, because part of the Bencoolen Road is blocked for the construction, many taxi drivers did not know how to access the hotel from the back road. One ended up having to make a 3-point turn on a deadend and another drove round and round (Tell them to look out for the huge orange directional signboards. Otherwise tell them to drop you at Kopitiam which is just opposite.)
Also, there was some miscommunication among the hotel personnel regarding our charges and I ended up having to argue with the lady at the reception at checkout. Note to self: ensure that the reception enter any changes into their computer system at checkin.
