A budget hotel not worth it. Sorry to say that the blanket is smell of piss and our bed is not comfortable. You can hear people peeing from up stairs and flushing the toilet. 1 thing that I like most about the hotel is the speed of the internet cant get it else where.

Booked the executive suite (good for 12) online via Booking.com. We arrived at past 12am but the owner still accommodated us. ^_^ The room is big and clean.. and there's an available WIFI. In the morning, we had our breakfast in a restaurant near (few meters) the hotel. There's also available shuttle service to Legoland for a reasonable price. This hotel is highly recommended if you're looking for budget-friendly place to stay.

Likes - speedy check in / out. very friendly and helpful staffs (Usman, & Steven). late check out up to 1700hrs (RM28). 7Eleven less than 5 mints walk. Very good WiFi speed. Huge windows

Dislikes - stairs stairs stairs, 'water dispenser' in the room looks dodgy (in some rooms), bad TV reception (not for room GL10 on top most floor), hard to find parking spot during the day (surrounded by office lots)

Stayed here for a night and found it to be comfortable amongst the other hotels within the vicinity. The winner was the fact that the bed sheet was clean and fresh and the rooms was not that tiny. The bathroom was also decent. I would recommend this place highly If you are not looking for a five-star standard if what you are paying for is RM70.

One room big enough for 14paxI booked this hotel 3weeks before check in date via agoda. I called them to confirm 3days before check in date. My whole family including 2 babies arrived at 2.30pm. The counter boy called the boss since he don't know about there is online booking. The boss came to arrange the room. We waited sooooo long to get the room at 5.30pm since the room already have another guest for them to move to another room...my god! 3 hours waiting and yet they just said another half an hour when we asked. They just gave the key and pillow case at 7pm. Wifi not even one bar

I get good service from the manager here. Conditions in the room is clean and comfortable. Wifi facilities are also provided with free. Halal food located across the street but have to drive in approximately 15 minutes. There was no lift and have to use the stairs to go to the hotel room then it is quite difficult for the elderly and families with child. Police station located just behind the hotel.

Very bad experience with this hotel!! I had never encounter a hotel like this. Check in to hotel on business trip. Upon check in, receptionist asking if i need an air-con room? what kind of question is this?? Are we staying in winter country? Nevermind, when i enter the room, room is dirty, floor is sticky and full with cigarette smoke. Towel with stain. Oh my god! I will rather sleep in my car rather paying for this kind of hotel. PLS DONT BE CONNED BY PICTURE!!
