Booked this hotel via Living Social site, got it for half the price for a Deluxe Riverview room.
Did not expect much of the hotel however it is really old, dated and tired looking. The entrance was drab and lobby was badly lit. Room was dark, dirty and bathroom amenities were very minimal (no shower cap). Bed sheet felt thin and cheap, so were the towels. Bathroom looked like that in the motel, cold and dirty.
Buffet breakfast was very poor as well as the selection was very minimal. Hotel was located further off the main attraction, and noisy throughout the night.
The only pro was that it was located next to the river so the view was quite nice.We took the river cruise which came with the package and had a good time as pick up point was at the hotel itself. We just hop into the boat.
Also, the front desk officer Halim was very polite and helpful.
Overall, we did not enjoy our stay here and would not have booked it if it was not for the online offer. Sad to say we will not return here unless the hotel goes through a major refurbishment.
