“Worth every penny”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This hotel is usually above our budget, at AU$51 pn, via Agoda. However, it was the best price, and in the right location, that I could find at such short notice.

It's just lovely. The staff are exceptional...every one of them. You can tell they've had excellent training.

The rooms are spotless, well equipped with toiletries, bath and hand towels, face washers (yay) hair dryer and coffee/tea making facilities. We unknowingly checked in to a twin room, and when we requested a double, we were swiftly relocated.

The furnishings are simple and tasteful. Breakfast (included) is a buffet, with ample choices and cooked to order egg station. Wifi however, is only available in the foyer.

The hot water was intermittent in the shower and the window could do with sound proofing...a place nearby (on the road bridge side), likes to play loud music until the early hours, sometimes. Our companions said they had no such issue on the opposite side of the hotel.

The Best Western is riverside, which means it's in walking or boat distance from most of the main attractions. Cross the road bridge and turn left and you'll find a street with bars and cafes. Stop at the very first on the corner, a large Malay/Chinese place. The food is yummy, prices are good and the owners very helpfull and friendly.

Room Tip: A place nearby (on the road bridge side), likes to play loud music until the early hours, sometimes...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly, the room was big and clean. The breakfast was perfect. The location is good, there is near the Jonker Str.
