It is a convenient business hotel in the centre of old town and nearby the sea. From upper floors you can have a nice sea view (rooms 12 to 22). Breakfast is tasty with good choice of flavours (from Western cuisine to Thai, Malay, Japanese and Korean). Strategic location makes this place a good choice (c.a. 30 minutes drive from the airport). Rooms, although not very spacious, are refurbished and clean, with clean bedclothes (I stayed at the deluxe room, Pinnacle floor). Bathroom is clean. Toilet amenities, safe-box, iron and iron board, hair-dryer, electric water-kettle, a choice of teas and coffees are provided. Rooms are equipped with international charger socket with a variety of configuration (British, European, USA, RSA) - no need to bring your own. Wi-Fi works perfectly in the rooms and in the lobby. Check-in and check-out processes are very fast and not bothersome. Only some things need more attention - sofas at the lobby and corridors carpeting seem to see better times and the room doors are quite thin - you can hear slamming doors and people talking. In some areas you can smell a strong cigarette smoke. Aircon was difficult to adjust. But the overall impression is better than average, close to good. I keep finger crossed for further improvement :-)
