Overall the hotel stay is a great experience since it was my first time staying there. Staff was not very friendly probably due to the fact that it was a very busy day due to the school holidays. However, the overall experience with their service is still decent if not good despite them being very pre-occupied.
Rooms are clean and the air-conditioning was sufficient. Not freezing cold or too warm.
Bathroom amnesties are all readily available. Shower foam, shampoo, toothbrushes and the usual standard stuff. A safe, iron and ironing board can be found in the wardrobe.
Plenty of food can be found nearby. For the fast food junkies there is still Macdonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken nearby and for the more adventurous, there is a food street nearer to Mahkota Parade area.
If you are into museums, directly behind the hotel just walk along Jalan Parameswara, you will come to a small gate and within this area are where quite a number of museums are. Entry to some of the museum requires an entrance fee so do take note of that.
Jonker street was about 20 minutes walk for us.
Overall the stay was pleasant and enjoyable for all of us despite the short period of time spent there.
