Not worth
Polite staff, restaurant, location
Not good. Other than those 3 things best I mentioned. Too much noise from top floor fan/AC. Not at all good lightning in room ( almost dark ). Pretty old and run down inside rooms. On top of that, I wanted to cancel one day of hotel stay. First they said, it is upto Agoda. Then after I talked to Agoda they agreed to, as long as Hotel agrees, then the staff changed their position and says it is their policy not to modify the stay. Will never go back.

nicely designed hotel
staff, spa, locatiion
a really nice hotel with well designed rooms and decor. the staff was great and the spa treatments were fantastic. the pool is small but a great way to cool down after spending a hot day walking around town. rooms facing the main road jalan hutton were fine but for a light sleeper some of the car traffic may be a bit too much but i enjoyed hearing the noises of the city.
