Normal hotel

Cleanliness; facilities; balcony
It's a clean, decent hotel. A bit displeased that the same receptionist who had attended to me, had not told me there was wifi, but was seen asking, on his own initiative, if an ang moh customer who was checking in if he needed the password to the wifi. Why the double standard LOL.
Vun K. Business travelers Malaysia, June 27, 2015
Awesome food but room at below average condition

Staff are especially helpful, breakfast was good
Hotel room condition could be improved; the toilet has a bit of leakage, telephone was missing from the room, air conditioning was not cold enough.
Tan H. Couples Singapore, June 25, 2015
Reasonable hotel

Price, price, price
4 star hotel with 3 star pricing. Room looks tired, needs a good refurnishing. Location wise, consider reasonable, with shuttle bus to main streets in town.

Kia T. Business travelers Malaysia, June 20, 2015
Dirty room

My stay in this hotel was terrible. Room air conditioner was working, I need to turn on the ceiling fan to cool down the room. There's also some weird smell in the room. Breakfast was decent with limited choices.
