Hi Kim Fooi,

Thanks for your recommendations to our guests. Now we have even more entertainments and the latest AEON Shopping Mall is running their business. 5 minutes walking distance to the shopping mall as well.

Thanks a million...

Not much special looking from outside, but once stepped in the hotel, the staffs were friendly and courteous, very well manners and helpful... Offer me a suitable and reasonable priced room, won't simply offer me expensive room.

Room is very clean and tidy, well maintained air-conditioner (no dust at filter). Under bed is clean, bathroom with heater and cold water, excellent signal in-room WiFi signal...

Security is good, 3 guards looking after my car, fully covered by CCTV.

A mini store at counter, reasonable price too...

A chinese restaurant beside the hotel, with malay satay and nasi lemak, western food and various kinds of food, not bad...

Worth to stay, definitely budget enough... get more than what you paid....

Room Tip: The staff will offer you the best room, so no worry at all...

Hi Melissa,

Your review astonished our management. We never expect our guests will put so much attentions to our amenities provided. It has indeed helped us greatly to promote our service to our guests. At the same time, we have to put even more effort to maintain our qualities as perfect as we can so that our guests will get more than what they pay.

Thanks...

Just came back from 1 night stay. Family with 2 young kids. Took Deluxe family 1 Queen, 2 super single bed for RM100/night no window the only window was at the toilet. Small room indeed no dressing table to put my macbook air, internet wifi not consistent. When you got connected it will race 4mb that was the good part. Security was good CCTV everywhere and 3 security guards to look after the car park. For a budget hotel the guard even will open the entrance glass door for you as if you are in 5 stars hotels. For food they do have a coffee shop next to the reception area, well maintained good food and reasonable priced.
The noise insulation need to be fixed. I heard children yelling and laughing outside the room then someone from other room caution them. Opposite the hotel there were shoplots being converted to swiftlets hotels. Anyway for 100 bucks nothing much to shout about you get what you paid for. Last word you will feel safe during your stay.

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper this might not for you.

Hi CK-Choo,

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. The Deluxe Family room has been upgraded with dressing table. But the window cannot be added due to our hotel structure is converted from shop lots. The WiFi problem is fixed by TM technical team. Now the signal is very strong and steady. We will look into ways to improve our sound isolation. Thanks for your reminder so that we know how to strengthen our weakness.

Thanks for your thumbs up of our security, we truely appreciate that.

Once again we apologize for the inconvenience brought to you...

This budget hotel offers room for as low as RM 30 for day use of three hours and RM 45 per night. No breakfast included, you can easily get breakfast/ brunch/ dinner/ supper at the many food stalls from the adjacent restaurant.

This hotel is still new, there are limited rooms for rent and are left with the choice of the RM 90 Superior Family room or the RM 100 Deluxe Family room. The receptions and guards are friendly and offered discounts before I start to bargain!

Pillow- quite thin
Bed- okay
Sheets- feels rough and has piling from multiple washes
Bathroom/ toilet- Small but spotless clean, shower-above-toilet, not a rain shower type but it's a powerful shower water (pressurized water, I read from the website)
Wifi- Provided for free but didn't try..
LCD TV- Provided but couldn't get any channels to work =(
Cleanliness- okay
Noise level- can hear the water flushing from next room! Thin walls!
Green points- uses solar system to heat up the water (says the site!)
Curfew- no curfew, party till 4am, still can enter your rooms
