Good value, with room for improvement
Very good location especially as there's free parking. Quite a scenic spot too, by the river. Despite road noise downstairs, none is to be heard in the room which was very welcome. Room design is quirky with a big porthole window and concrete everywhere - the table top, the bed's platform are all of concrete. Having said that, it all worked very nicely and was clean. Shower head was a bit wonky in my room but this is just general maintenance and I wasn't too bothered. I was less pleased with the staff though. No smiles or even a greeting upon check-in. And when I returned to my room at 11:45 am to get my things for check out, I found the room key not functioning so went down to get it sorted. No apology from staff, and when I went back upstairs only to find it still not working and had to make one more trip down, no apology was forthcoming still. The door was finally opened with the help of the housekeeping lady who was polite. I mentioned this nicely to the guy at front desk when I checked out and he finally apologised. I think training needs to be improved in this area. Otherwise it was a pleasant stay and I do hope the roof sees a cafe operator take it up as it's a nice spot to relax in the evenings I'm sure.

Good location with parking
It's located in Jalan Sultan Iskandar, about 10-minute walk to Lou Wong chicken rice and the night market. Some cafes and food stalls are nearby. It's next to the small river, and the bridge is a nice place to sit and relax at night for chats with friends. Parking is available next to the hotel but limited. We booked the Family room (3rd floor, with a lift) with attached bathroom, 3 single beds with a socket and reading light next to each bed (cool!). The room is clean, with air-cond, TV, shower heater and pot+glasses. No window, although it says "river view" for the room… Hot water and ironing table are in the corridor. Rooftop has tables and chairs, a windy place to relax (a cafe is under renovation). Staff was ok, hardly interacted with guests. Overall a pleasant stay!

Nice location, value for money
Budget, nice location and clean
This hotel is really recommended for budget traveler, very basic facilities while having a nice location and good price, many attractions are within the walking distance. For the driver, it is easy to get parking at the site of the hotel. The room is nothing but is clean, WIFI is available but not many amenities while at least TV is having some satellite channels. It is no kettle in the room but is sharing outside of the corridor. It has no restaurant at this moment, but you can easily get it outside. The reading light is not really serve the purpose in the room, and I can feel the single bed is old which has been used for long time till the bed have the curve from the center. I visited during CNY and rushing, which is super peak season, not really enjoy my trip. But the room is really fulfilling my needs with good price during this peak season.
