“Clean,Strategy Location,Comfortable”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Overall the decoration of the condo unit is family-friendly, clean, looks comfortable..
However, in order to take the condo unit key you have to drive out from condo to reception at Rucksack Caratel Garden Wing where have a distance in between made us not so convenient~
The design of the parking bay for residence have to turn round n round from ground to 3rd floor onwards made us feel dizzy~ When the parking was full then have to exit to the ground floor and goes up again~

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   Yes.

“Nice place for a one night getaway ”
Reviewed February 28, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Overall property is very nicely decorated and comfortable. Location is good, parking is convenient and easily accessible. Just probably might want to think of bringing your own toiletries because the toiletries provided is not sufficient for 6 pax
