OK if on budget

Cleanliness however there was a cockroach in the room
We stayed in room 302 and 2 nights we had to ring maintenance because the toilet wouldn't flush properly. No intiative on hotel management to allocate us to a different room.

old fashioned standards in a trendy city

Nora, the rooms, the staff
Complete pleasure from start to finish. The restaurant is run by an indipendant person (English ) and was nowhere near as good. But then Old Town coffee is right next door. Forgetting the overpriced and generally poor restaurant, this was one of the very best hotels I have ever stayed in. I cannot wait to go back.

For those who appreciates old world charm

The location, price and old world charm
Pleasant stay but air-con was noisy on first night. Location is convenient for food since its on Gaya Street and also shopping as it was nearby Suria Sabah. Hotel rate is reasonable for what is an old but adequately maintained hotel.
