I'm glad to stay here during my holiday. Staffs were friendly and helpful. I can walk to Gurney Drive because it is nearby and public transportation are reliable to go to as far as bayan baru, teluk bahang, etc. I made room service order for dinner and the food was delicious and fulfilling. The service was fast too. Wifi is... More

Choose this hotel because it located right in front of the Adventist Hospital. Rated as 4-stars, actually this is an old and dull hotel, but cleans enough. The room and bathroom was big and clean. The bed was OK. Air Con and Hot Water was running well. I love their big window that occupies the entire wall. It looks so... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in Junior Suite. Location - Good. There are two 24 hours mini markets and a small food court just beside the hotel. That way you won't have to worry about getting food/water anytime. Around 1 min walk to Adventist Hospital and 15 min walk to Gurney Plaza. Receptionist - Good. Check in and check out... More

I'm so disappointed I booked this hotel. The WiFi is barely working at all, so I wasn't able to get any job done while in the hotel. Two of the electrical outlets couldn't give enough power to charge my laptop, so I could only use the third one. The breakfast is mediocre, and while they have yogurt, it wasn't kept... More
