Stayed in a twin room with windows for 4 nights. The room was quite spacious; a bit dated but tidy. The bed was springy. It wasn’t to my liking but mum didn’t mind it. I still slept fine until the early prayers in the morning (I think around 5am on a daily basis), so get ready because that will be your morning call. Speaking of noise, the walls are quite thin so conversations in the corridor and room next door can be heard quite distinctly. I appreciated the night light when everything was switched off at night. Basic amenities were offered, including slippers and bottled water (note that tap water is treated with chlorine, so if you choose to drink it, it’s advised to boil it first). Our air con broke on our third day and upon informing the front desk, a maintenance guy came and promptly fixed it which was highly appreciated. Breakfast is a selection of Asian and Western fares, though not a wide selection. There’s an egg station outside where you can order how you want your egg from the chef. Location wise you are in the heart of it all. Everywhere was walkable and there were buses along the main road although I never took it so cannot comment. Overall, it was a decent stay with good service. Disclaimer: This was part of a trip with Trip a Deal.

A small hotel with basic needs for business travellers. The hotel is right in the city and it is at strategic location where surrounded by restaurants, convenient shops, cafes and complexes and within walking distance. However, it is not suitable for guest that spend more time in hotel as said it is quite basic and suitable for short stay business traveller. Breakfast is kind of basic one, and you will get bore if stay more than 2 days.

Stayed here during Christmas and was pleasantly surprised by the guest appearance of Santa + Santarina + Olaf and a church choir caroling at the lobby :) Room is great, try to get a high floor with a view of the city. Good location just opposite Gaya Street weekend market area. Breakfast is not too bad.
