I was bitten by insect / bug after the first night (all over upper thighs, buttocks and abdomen), though my partner was not affected. As it was a Sunday, the hotel staff told us the only place to consult doctor was at hospital A&E. After the visit, we requested for change of room. The reception commented that the previous guests had no feedback of bugs. We changed to a new room and did not suffer any more attacks for the next 2 nights.
Location wise, its about 7 min walk from MRT station. Nothing very interesting around the hotel. The night market nearby is mainly food stalls.
Room wise, its no frills but seemingly clean (except for the bug attack). There were 4 pillows and it would be more comfortable if they were not so flat.
There is a good spread for breakfast and they took effort to have some different items each day.
I wonder why there is no ramp from the main road to the lobby (though its like 2 steps but would certainly help to improve accessibility for those with heavy luggage). An automatic door would also help.
I like the service of the staff the most. They advised us on location of the hospital, helped to call famous restaurant for reservation and call us back to inform us of the outcome of the reservation. They are also able to provide other travel advice such as what time the attractions are open.
