“OK hotel for overnight stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This hotel has a very good location, close to shopping centers and eating places. Aeon shopping center and McDonalds is about 5-7 mins walk from the hotel. Unfortunately this area is very noisy, due to lots of construction work going around. It had free car parking and WiFi but no breakfast facility.

Room Tip: This place is noisy due to lots of construction work going all around this area. Give this place a s...

budget hotel for good location. The walls between rooms can be quite thin. A loud snoring neighbour did make sleeping difficult. But cleanliness and helpful hotel staff is commendable. The toilet seat was not comfortable at all. Otherwise a nice budget place for people who prefers location than comfort.
tips: booking earlier gets you a better price than walking in the hotel

A fairly new hotel that is close to nearby AEON Bukit Indah shopping mall.

The hotel is very clean and rooms are basic. There is an LCD TV and complimentary bottled water. The bathroom has a shower that is not really blocked off from the toilet bowl so it does get a bit wet from the water splashing. There is a small shelf with a wall mounted mirror in the room itself for grooming.

Snacks, drinks and instant noodles can be bought from the front desk and wifi is free and fairly good speed.

There is a McDonalds within 2 mins walking distance and other eateries for your meals as there is no coffee shop for breakfast in the hotel itself.

All in all, good value for the location.

I knew it is low budget hotel so expectations were not high. As the hotel was fairly new all the walls toilet are still clean. I did not give the high rating as the place is not a quiet place to rest. I can hear some noises outside my room as the walls are thin but I still find the noise acceptable. I am quite happy with my room as it comes with a king size bed and a window. I noticed there were some cigarettes smell during my stay but luckily not in my room.

The lobby receptionists are friendly but they charged me extra for 1 more pillow and blanket when I requested from them. The lobby sells some light snacks such as cup noodles.

The restaurant downstairs really so so only better walk further down for better food choice.

The mall and MacDonald is near but if walking with kids or stroller may not be that convenient.

Stayed 1 night at Princeton Hotel for a short trip to JB. We chose this hotel as it was close to the malls - walking distance to Aeon Bukit Indah and Tesco, and a 20 minute drive to Sutera Mall. Another 3 minute drive away at 16/4 Jalan Indah is where the food court and coffee shops are located. Just next to the row of shop houses are the car servicing shops where you can polish or do whatever modifications to your car.

Back to the hotel room. Stayed in the family room that comes with a queen bed and a single bed. A pity it does not have 2 queen beds. We had to squeeze the toddler between 2 adults on the queen bed. Room was clean and looked newly painted, without any windows. It is compact and rather small, with only a walkway to place your luggage, and that's it. Toilet was clean with rain shower so it's rather tricky to bath the younger kid. Comes with 3 towels, shampoo, toothbrush. However, if you require kettle, hanger, and hair dryer, you need to request at the front desk. Hair dryer is limited to 1 hour usage as it is shared amongst the guests! I suppose it's a way to cut cost. Anyway, hot and cold water dispenser is located along the corridor when you come out from the lift. There's only 2 levels to the hotel. Parking is in front of the hotel lobby along the main road which is not very secured. It's entirely dependant on the reception staff to look out for your car when you register with them. We brought along a steering wheel lock just in case.

We booked through Booking.com which is convenient and hassle free. Overall, it was a smooth and pleasant stay. After all that shopping, what we needed was just a clean room to stay. Breakfast not provided but there's no need for that as there's plenty of eateries around. Plus, there's always MacDonald's drive through.

Clean with quite comfortable bed. However our room faced the main road is disturbed by the construction site opp even in middle of night. The sound proof is poor, Can hear the next door especially the door. Toilet is clean but the towels not very clean.
