Clean and hassle free
The facilites were good with a kithcen and i love the pool table and ping pong! The car park was really small though, and we had to wait for the painter to come out before we could park our car.

Nice budget hotel
Stayed in private single room ensuite. Room is small but got all the things I needed for 2-night stay. Convenient with a one-dollar city circle bus stop near to hotel. Sky bus stop is also only 2 streets away. Food shops are in walking distance. Only the matress is too old that it is so uncomfortable.
