An attempt at modernity on a budget. However, the prices are not that cheap either that you can shut your eyes to a lack of quality basic amenities. Most significant is the bed and pillows! a sinking bed causing backaches and pillows which are just too soft and sinking. When you cant have a good nitghts rest on a holiday, it just sucks. Tried out this hotel as a better value alternative to Le Meridien and the rest, but I guess you cant substitute quality, so i will not be staying here again. The hotel staff still lack basic practice in service, it took them 8 hours to hand me internet cables to my room and the same amount of time for 2 extra pillows, as you just cannot sleep on one of them without feeling like youre in quicksand. No complaints about the breakfast and the rain shower in the room. The air cond in our room was in good working order as well. The premier lounge was a complete disaster. The staff had no idea what was going on, it seemed as though they did not have a guest there in months having a cocktail during the evening cocktail hours. A poor selection of alcohol, coupled with the staff's insistence on preparing your drink for you but taking 30 minutes to prepare a vodka/orange is just shocking when you only have an hour at the lounge! food was poor, only went for it once despite a 4 night stay booked cos its a complete waste of time. Planning on moving to Le Meridien, as this is just not what you would expect for rm 380 a night!. The photos are a misrepresentation of the size of the room, i booked a premier lounge room and it really seemed a lot bigger in the pictures and banner outside the hotel, but the room itself was quite standard/small. If i was paying rm 200 perhaps I would not be entitled to have such expectations. Will not be staying here again.
