The minute you enter the hotel, you have a sense of deja vu as you have been transported back to the earlier 80's. Typical of the settings and furnishing, one can sense that nothing much was done to modernize this place.
By the time, I enter the lift and came out to the floor where I stayed, the layout is like a maze. Each corner of the floor had rooms and it is quite compact. As I was a single traveler, I would have thought that they might give me a single Queen or even King size but I was completely wrong, I was a single bed.
The furniture settings in the room is still the 80's feel but surprised to see a flat screen tv mounted on the wall. The bathroom had a tub (why??) and the shower area was mounted a shower dispenser (which leaks).
I tried their breakfast which I had to pay an extra RM20, and felt with that kind of money, it would have been best used for outside food. It is really disappointing.
Plus point about this hotel, it is mere walking distance to the Riverside waterfront, the Brooke memorial, the heritage walks and the numerous eating shops along the vicinity. If you are looking for a hotel with no frills and just to rest for the night, this hotel will serve it's purpose...because the location is in itself a plus point!
Oh yes, the staffs are quite charming and also hospitable. They made my stay more relaxed.
