Value for Money

Location, price and hotel cleanliness
M stay at this hotel was comfortable and enjoyable. Room is big but the two single beds are small. Location is excellent as it is nearby to shopping complex and food courts.

Location is ok but the air condition as whole bad

Location is good, view is nice, people are friendly
Air conditioning is the main concern, once i step in at the lobby, the coldness is not there, i did change the room once, but the ac in the room also failed, although it has two split unit with 1hp, still cant accomodate the room size..

Hot water not available and safe facilities not

See below
Bfast was good, location is convenient and guard staff friendly. Hot water was not available for 1 room. The safe facilities for the two rooms was not working. Housekeeping can be improved as no one came to the rooms after we reported.

Maintainance Down The Drain

Food. Comfortable Bed. The view
The maintanance sucked. Change rooms four times because air conditioning was bad than followed by hot water in the next room. Followed by bad flushing system in the next. Shifting rooms so tedious and the receptionist Ms. Venilla extremely rude.

good location

location, big room and nice view
Room look outdated eventhough I got the newly refurbished room.smelly room and stained sofa. Breakfast simple. So many floors but only got 3 lift and one of it is not working. Even the couch at the lobby has lost it "springiness" and looks old.hotel overrated but still good location and nice view from room
