My first time staying here. It was clean and neat. Room (deluxe) was spacious, so was the bathroom which has a jacuzzi. The extra bed was surprisingly good. It was firm, not the squeaky and springing type that sagged in the middle. The matresses were really firm and comfortable - think they just installed new ones. Parking is free and ample. Room was not supposed to be in a smoking zone but it has an ashtray in the bathroom.
Drawbacks ? No free wifi :-( And staff were very inflexible about this. Breakfast at the lobby was reasonable (RM9 on average) but quality was below average. Scrambled eggs were like omelette and toasts were hardly the way I thought toasts were. Sausages were cold. Staff, though not rude or anything like that, were neither friendly nor warm. They didn't smile and were so transactional I felt like I was buying a train ticket at the counter. If you are looking for a welcoming ambience, you can drop the thought.
Location is kind of out of the way from Jonker Walk (20 mins' walk) and major shopping places like Makhota and Palawan Dataran (taxi would be better). We drove so it was ok though the road in front was perpetually choked up. Very congested.
It was a comfortable stay but no frills. It was ok if you just want a clean place to stay but be prepared to put in more effort to move around to touristy areas.
