Great location, comfy bed, room, spacious. Triple room comes with a Jacuzzi tub. Only problem it came with only 2 key cards for the three of us with different schedules. One of us had to keep asking the front desk to let us in.

Hotel room is large and comfortable. However, tv channel selection are too few. Some are just black screen with voice. Breakfast is delicious. Location wise is very convenient. It is near to a lot attraction and jonker street.

The hotel has ample parking space available for guests and parking is free. Hotel staff are also friendly and efficient. The room is comfortably sized for 2 people. Bathroom is... More

Hotel is nice, quiet and clean with friendly staff. Love the shower with rain shower. Close to shops and easy to find food. Around 10 min walk to historical place and Jonker Street. Enough car park space. Enjoyed the stay.

A very new hotel , close to everything. Very clean with an ensuite shower to die for. The only things that I thought they needed was a bar and restaurant available for guests and that the property behind is a bit of an eyesore .

Had to argue for 15 minutes that they need to honor the booking, hence give 3 vouchers - for a 12MYR breakfast... 2nd problem: safe deposit box did not work and Housekeeping was... More

I stayed here and found the location close to Jonkers street but it was too Pricey, can certainly find a better place for Rm160 without breakfast ! Rooms are clean ... didn't get a chance to check out the Breakfast spread....
