“Lousy internet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2011

Before I checked in, I enquired about the internet; but when we have checked in, we couldn't get internet for our entire stay. That made me feel kinda cheated. Room cost me RM100, no breakfast. The hotel seemed a bit empty. I loved the water pressure and the heat of the shower. Parking was OK. Location is good. Food, shopping and transport is nearby downstairs. Hence, my experience had been satisfactory except for the internet connection... zilch.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2010

At RM120 a night with breakfast, what more can be expected. Hotel was clean and basic. Free wifi didn't work for the 5 days I stayed. Breakfast was decent with local dishes, cereal, fruits, toast and porridge. Free local newspapers and drinking water provided. Tv programs included HBO, star movies, wah lai toi and were surprisingly clear reception, compared to other Malaysia hotels I stayed eg. Genting. No safe inside room. Iron/board was provided upon request. Everything was in working condition. Bed and pillows were more comfortable than in the past hotels. Location is decent with laundrettes, convenience stores/supermarkets, restaurants eg. KFC, pizza hut and pubs within 5 mins walking radius. Laundry service is cheap eg. rm2 or rm3 per piece. Overall ok for a budget.
