Travelled with extended family and we booked 3 rooms. Stayed from 21-23 Dec 2012.
Location - this hotel is perfect for short getaways to Legoland Malaysia and the Johor Premium Outlet. Bus service CW6 (from Boon Lay MRT station in Singapore) stops right in front of Giant hypermarket (which is located right in front of the hotel). So, this is perfect for travelers from Singapore. From here, you can get a cab to Legoland for RM20 or less and it takes no more than 15 minutes to get there. You can also get a bus to the Premium Outlet from the same stop (SL1).
Convenience - the front desk sells Legoland tickets at the same price as at the door. You will definitely save time and hassle if you bought tickets from the hotel first before going to Legoland. The ticket queues at Legoland is almost always very long early in the morning.
Car park - just public parking by the street. The only good thing is that it is free.
This is definitely NOT a boutique hotel as advertised by the hotel. It is just a regular small hotel (3-star). This is strictly a place to crash after a hectic day out.
Price - rather expensive for what you get. Price starts from RM178/night. You probably can get similar quality hotel in Kuala Lumpur for much less.
Breakfast - room comes with two complimentary breakfast (on the 10th floor). Totally forgettable. Selection is Terrible (with a capital T). You'd be better off finding food nearby (there are many eating places all around hotel).
Room - this is supposedly a rather new hotel but the room condition is already rather bad. The room that I stayed in had water leaking from the window (when it rains). And there were signs of water seepage from the toilet and the wall paper outside the toilet was already peeling. The other 2 rooms didn't seem to have a water seepage problem. Walls/door are thin. We could hear the opposite room occupant opening and closing their door all the time.
Bathroom - cleanliness was acceptable. The exhaust fan in the toilet was REALLY noisy. The toilet bowl was choked on the 2nd night and we had to call for help to fix it. One of the other rooms also had the same problem. The hair dryer in our room broke down on the second night too. Maybe we were just unlucky...... But then again, I could see lots of signs of things falling apart - shower door hinges rusted and had some parts out of place, toilet seat not secured properly, shower head showing spots of rust, towels were not exactly "white" anymore, etc.
Unhelpful front desk - I asked one of the guys at the desk how to drive to Johor Premium Outlet. His very quick reply was "Oh, I don't know. Try asking at the petrol station." Then I asked for a local map. His answer: "Sorry we don't have maps."
TV - reception in almost all channels were poor except for Channel News Asia. All the other channels were either "snowy" od had double image (like watching a 3-D TV without the goggles/specs.).
Swimming pool - really tiny pool on the roof (10th floor).
Others - corridors are rather dark and rooms don't have carpets but room size was acceptable with a king sized bed. Seems like all rooms are smoking rooms. Corridors smell slightly of cigarette smoke.
Giant hypermarket is right outside the main entrance. Telco hypermarket is across the main road, about 10 mins walk away from the hotel.
