My cab driver didn't know where the place was- but thank god it was on Waze and Google maps! Just tell the driver to go to Jalan Transfer, and look out for a bakery, it's down that lane.
I was greeted pleasantly by the reception, both young and very friendly people. They helped me bring my bag to my room, and I was served a welcome drink. When I called reception for anything, they'd call me by name- nice touch!
They serve complimentary breakfast, which they bring to your room. It was absolutely delicious. I loved the stay here, only reason I may not come back was cos I found the mattress a lil hard for me, I recommended this hotel anyway to a friend of mine who stayed there- she LOVED the pillows and bed though! I guess it's a matter of preference.
Another shortcoming is that the lobby is not airconditioned (which is great for the environment though!), so if you are checking out early, and have time to kill, you can't really hang out in the lobby. You can however head to the gym though, which is air-conditioned.
Must say again that the service in this hotel is excellent, wish I had taken down their names so I could acknowledge them individually!
