Getting to the hotel from the airport was a breeze. Taxifare was RM26, and the ticket can be purchased from the airport counter. No hassles. Malaysian immigration has a nice surprise - no need to fill up the immigration form. Just show your passport and they take a scan of your 2 index fingers. That's it. That's nice.
Had a room with the river view. Very scenic. Great view to wake up to. The Chinese restaurant was good. Enjoyed the dim sum dishes with some friends and other assorted dishes.
A little disappointed with the internet charges for room use. But, the wifi signals at the lobby and the coffee house were strong enough to get most things done. Just wished I could check my email in my pyjamas : )
Hotel's location is superb. Just next to the river walk. Lots of things to see and do. If you have an hour to spare, the river boat ride will show you the less touristy spots along the river.
Room was clean, service at front desk, doorman, restaurant, and cleaning crew was friendly and felt sincere.
Overall, a satisfying trip. Worth another visit.
