“Very close to an extraordinary place to stay.”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

If you're looking for an affordable & comfortable hotel to stay near Kotaraya Terminal , malls ( City Square mall ) or eating places ( Medan Selera ) do come here. It is very affordable & the breakfast is included! For me the breakfast is great & the room reached to my expectations. The staffs were really helpful when I was choosing my room & when my phone could not be connected to the hotel wifi. As for me I chose the standard queen bed with an extra bed which only cost me RM213 a night. From Kotaraya Terminal it is just 5 mins walking distance to Medan Selera & from Medan Selera , it is 5 mins walk to the hotel. &&&&&&& it is just 8 mins walk to City Square Mall! Overall , I feel that it is a great place & indeed I would come here again. It would have been an extraordinary place if there was a swimming pool , jacuzzi.

Stayed April 2014

The staff were polite and attentive. We were late checking-in but they were quite efficient in assigning us with a clean and comfortable room on the 18th floor. Although our room was facing the busy Jalan Wong Ah Fook, it wasn't noisy at all. We were treated with spectacular sunrises every morning. Excellent!

Towels tend to be a little worn and grey so if you are the squirmish type, do bring your own. These are changed daily no matter if you have hung them carefully on the towel rail or otherwise.

The hotel only provides two hangers so if you require more, bring your own. Each floor is equipped with an ironing board and iron at the sitting area. We had a room just outside the sitting area so it was quite convenient.

The room was an adequate size for two single beds, with two occupants. The attached bathroom was a little cramped. The tiles tend to be slippery when wet so do be careful when stepping out of the shower.

Breakfast was a typical spread with fried rice / noodle, sausage / chicken ham, baked beans, porridge, soup with noodles, toast and cut fruits. Strangely, they do not serve eggs and has got to be the first hotel I've ever come across that doesn't.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, facing Jalan Wong Ah Fook for a spectacular sunrise every morning.

This hotel is just 5 minutes walk to city square shopping mall. More expensive by $20 than the sister hotel amansari express.

Rooms are very basic, the weird fact is if you ask for a non-smoking room you would need to add $20 since it is a higher category as per the staff. So if you book the standard room be prepared to stay on a smelly room if you do not wish to add $20 to the room rate. Our room is at the 15th floor and faces a construction site but no disturbance of noice. cleanliness can be improved. I can see from the floor that it was not cleaned for quite sometime. Footprints are everywear.

Service is better for this hotel, staff are more efficient. Before checking in we needed internet connection to check on something, the staff allowed us to use their internet connection free of charge. They also assisted us on printing some documents.

For breakfast, they have an egg station but their omellete is very blant. More choices but food but is not replenished regularly and buffet counter is not maintained in terms of cleanliness.

Recommend if you are going for shopping.

I stayed there on January 2014. It was nice hotel. The room not so big but comfy. The check in and check out was efficient. Location is behind the city square, not too close but still walking distance. I don't really like the surroundings, especially the construction is everywhere. I feel not really safe if walking alone at night.

Location is good and convenient which is walking distance to City Square Mall, the CIQ (Immigration) building and the Kotaraya bus terminal which is convenient to travel to Singapore.
The reception area is small. Stayed in a room for 3 pax which has a King sized bed with an additional bed. It has a small fridge, a safe, dressing table, 2 side table, 2 single settee and a small coffee table, and a LCD TV hanged on the wall. Bath room is of reasonable size. Buffet breakfast was good too.

The set back of the hotel for now is because there is the large construction building in the front and also at the side of the hotel.

Stayed here for two nights. The reasons were due to its location and price. Locationwise, it near to JB Central and CIQ. 10 minutes walking across the streets to get us to the CIQ and enter Singapore. Since we were also visiting our friend in JB and travelling in-out Singapore for 2 days, we decided to stay at this hotel. Price was very reasonable, RM114 per night, twin sharing room. Room was decent, bath room was ok and clean. big window looking the CIQ and JB Sentral. I love having big window in my hotel room. air condition was beyond our expectation, extremely cool.. hehe. we had the highest floor which i enjoyed the view but had the internet connection. due to its location, we merely connected to the internet. need to get to the lobby to have a better connection. otherwise, use our own internet from our data service provider. overall, we had a pleasant stay at the hotel with a good breakfast serving.

Room Tip: Low level room to enjoy better internet connection or high level room to enjoy view of the city.
