Just stayed 2 days 1 night at this hotel and wasn't really impressed after reading the reviews of the previous occupants when i've booked this hotel.
First of all, i admit that this is a new hotel and for the price we are paying is a little bit fair but given a second chance i rather pay a little higher for a nicer stay. Clean is clean but is really boring and the room given to us was really horrible. It was the first room at 2nd floor just beside the roof of the building. The toilet has a flight of stairs and was not astonishing design at all. We have to climb the stairs each time we enters the toilet and the size of the toilet is smaller than my backpacking hotel experience.
Secondly, the location of the hotel is just right beside a petron petrol station and no beach view at all. For those tourist who are looking for an easy walk to to the beach please take note that is rather far for the nearest beach that you can swim. Unless you have a car to commute around, this is not a good place because the hotel has nothing to offer, so you can think twice if you are planning a stay without a breakfast facility.
Lastly, i would not recommend this hotel for those whom looking for a pleasant beach experience even though the price is affordable but is really a hassle to get to the nearest beach at teluk kempang.
