Not only it is expensive, the toilet is dirty, the soap container is moulded, extremely noisy due to traffic. I would never go back to this place. The breakfast was also bad. Faul smelling. This place has so much potential to b great because it's in the city but no effort done.

- Best place to stay if you took Damri airport bus. Just take a betor (beca motor) from Plaza Medan Fair/Carrefour, takes only 3 minutes to the hotel. - Just five minutes walk to Pasar Petisah, just be extra careful crossing the super busy road. - Clean and simple room, comfortable enough for me and my mom and her friends...

a good room with an excellent comfortable bed, air con was also good .. generally a poor location with the only advantage being a walking distance to the plaza from where the airport bus starts/terminal. This hotel is for those taking the airport bus, otherwise if using a taxi to/from the airport find a hotel in a better location. The... More

No kettle to boil hot water is provided within the room. The door does not have double layer security. It can easily be opened by the hotel staff from the outside. At 7.00 a.m. the housekeeping person will start to knock on your door (once) and immediately open the door of your room by using their keys. Even though there... More
