Wifi coverage is good but not fast enough. Around 8-10 reserve parking available. You can pick the pillow you like before you proceed to your room. Staff was nice. Walking distance has some food court but variety is not much. Famous jalan siam char keuy tiew just next to it. Overall consider value for money. You also can choose your favorite shampoo and body shampoo at their lobby. This is what I dislike because you have to keep come down and take the shampoo.However, inside the room did prepare you normal shampoo and soap.
