It is an old hotel, but do not be deterred by the old facade and out of date carpets. Its location is excellent ( just beside the free hop on-hop off bus service stop) and the service is great. It is old but the people there still take pride in their profession and respect their guests. I booked a room which had a double bed and a single bed during the peak period and was charged RM 121 nett including breakfast. Initially I had my apprehensions as the hotel was really old and really resembled a spooky movie set. But the beds were comfy, rooms and toilets were hygienic,and the room was spacious. Breakfast consisted of noodles, toast, coffee and tea, bananas and cakes. For a basic, value for money stay, this hotel is it.
