Stayed at Da Som Inn for 3 nights. The room that I booked was Deluxe Double.
1) Check in and out is fast.
2) Room is spacious.
3) The cleanliness of the room and bathroom is acceptable.
4) Air conditioner + fan = very cooling.
5) Shower is very strong.
6) Water dispenser is available.
7) Staffs are very friendly.
8) The location of the hotel is very strategic as it is just a walking distance to many tourist spots and famous restaurants including Jonker street, Tan Kim Hock Product Centre, Pak Putra Tandoori & Naan Restaurant and shopping malls like Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan. To be honest, the room is a bit pricey. If it is not because of its location, I would never stay at the hotel.
9) The hotel has no parking slots. However, if you have your own transport, you can park your car at a nearby private parking space (within walking distance) for RM5 a day. If you don't want to use the private parking space, you can buy parking coupons at a shop next to the hotel.
1) The room is only secured with normal lock.
2) Room floor was dusty.
3) Staffs go back home at night. So, no one is taking care of the hotel.
4) Although the bed is comfortable to sleep, pillows are paper thin. Luckily, I brought along my own blanket, or else I would be frozen to death :)
5) The room comes with breakfast sets for 2 persons but we only realized about it the day we checked out.
6) The room has an old TV with very few and blurry TV channels.
7) Complimentary bottles of water were not provided.
8) All remote controls are not working. Even if they work, we have no control over the air-Cond temperature.
I was told by the staffs that they just take over the hotel, not even 1 month. I guess they can it an even better hotel.
