My stay was from 7-9 July 2012. The hotel is strategically located in the heart of Jonker walk, it is bascially situated at the street end of the night market and there is a famous local produce shop which is located just beside the hotel thus enabling last minute shopping.
The hotel is very basic, there is breakfast provided and it consist of free flow of white bread, butter, kaya, jam, coffee and tea from 7-10am, there is also a 24hr water dispenser and free computer use at the lobby.
But of course there are always two sides to a coin, the disadvantage of this hotel is the level of service they provide but logically speaking, for the low cost that we are paying I guess poor service does comes with it. There was one instance where before we could finish our second request over the phone, the receptionist slam down the phone and ended the call very rudely.
Bathroom was considered mini and the water supply was inconsistent where it will be full blast for a few minutes and not so for the next few minutes and this affected the temperature as it would be hot and switching to warm in just a matter of minutes
As for TV & free WIFI, please do not have any expectations as the signal is super bad, out of the 15 TV channels only 3 can be viewed and two of them are in their local language with no subtitles and as for WIFI, the reception was so bad (even in their lobby) that I had to log in a few times in order to use the slow connection.
Bottomline is: this is really a 1 star hotel with no frills as reflected in their slogan and basically it boils down to "you get what you pay for."
