This hotel is a joint venture between a Chinese group and Equatorial hotels in Malaysia. The location is good for business areas and about 15 minutes walk from a subway station. There are usually taxis around.There are a few bars and an Indian restaurant down the street opposite the Hilton hotel and a convenience store with local snacks ( steamed buns ), beer wine and essentials . Hotel staff are good and speak excellent English . The Cafe 65 has buffets and a la carte , western and Asian. Buffet breakfast is very good although the egg cooking staff seem to think that all fried eggs must be over easy and overcooked. I had to get a waiter to explain a sunny side up under cooked egg. There is a chinese restaurant upstairs that I did not visit. Rooms are quite large , with wired internet and satellite TV, mini bar and all you expect. Laundry did not come back at 7pm on the same day as stated on laundry list so be carefull if you have an early check out next day. Overall I was happy with the value and service of this hotel.
