I visited this month for a quick get-a-way. I grabbed the on going promo that time the price is so affordable. Great for a short staycation to clear of your mind. Located in mid of the town, good access to hotel parking. You dont have to worry about the safety of your car, and just a few minutes drive to get local street foods. The room is cozy and fresh enough for a solo guest like me. The front office staffs are very warm and welcoming, especially to Achong. Coming back from meeting i was so tired and bum but upon arrival he welcomed me with a happy smile. I felt at home. He made sure my stay is memorable, i had a smooth check in process thanks to Achong. He also complemented my room with a beautiful view. Such a great staff your hotel have! I will definitely recommend my friends and families to stay here in the future. Good qualities and price-wise, def will come back!
