Reviewed August 10, 2012

Value for the money, grey for backpackers... Clean enough. The hotel is pretty old and the building and the rooms definitively need to be refurbished but this is discounted on the price and you pay almost nothing but stay at a decent place. Free transport to the airport and beach nearby. Suggested to backpackers and similar... It is 20 ringgit of cub far from the centre though.

Reviewed December 3, 2010

It could be a nice hotel if only they changed the following :
1. Terrible STAFF - all of staff members were very unpleasant , never smiling , we always felt like they were doing us a favor being there / answering questions / serving breakfast or lunch
2. Rooms itself are quite ok , but cleaning standard is very poor + our room had very strong cigarette smell
3. We've seen dirty plates / glasses sitting next to the elevator door for three days ( !!!!) It was over 30 degrees celcius , so the smell was horrible ....

It is a real shame for owner / management of this hotel, as it is a nice building in a good location .... I think if they changed staff + cleaning standard it could become a nice place to stay
