Firstly, this hotel is hard to find! The address correct, but it is in a new area which IS NOT on google maps. (or any other maps) Instead Google Maps shows the hotel close to Jonker Walk - which it is not.
We had a Malay speaker with us and even calling the hotel, they could not explain how to get to the hotel. Big extra points for them, however, as they sent a guy on a motorbike and we followed him to the hotel (at 1am!)
The hotel is in a new strip mall located at 2.19229N 102.23806E (http://goo.gl/maps/vwUc8). Look for the Swan Hotel – in the back of the same strip mall.
In March 2012 the hotel was six months old. Since it was new, pretty good condition and relatively clean. But, I don't think they clean very well or often. The sheets were clean, but general dirt and dust everywhere else. Cigarette butt floating in the toilet. If they don't keep up maintenance it will likely degrade to a pretty dirty place.
The rooms shown on booking.com because the Queen bed rooms are exactly as they advertise – 12 sq. meters. That's quite small but ok for a short stay. Combined shower/toilet common in Malaysia so very wet in there after the first person showers.
The rooms have three big bright lights with individual switches. Putting on even just one light is totally bright in the room. Depending on your taste, this might be good or bad. For us, it was much too bright for 1am. No bedside or desk lamp – so it is super bright, or nothing.
Had breakfast at the back (front?) the building at the Donald & Lilly Peranakan Restaurant. The manager is super nice and super helpful. Excellent food!
