"A spacious room for 3 of us. Hotel is surrounded with paddy field & easy to get access to many places in Arau. Air-cond is not functioning well the day we checked in. However, overall the hotel is quite convenient to stay with friendly staffs in the frontline."

"Location: Great location in the Arau town. Close to the Uitm (5 minutes), Kangar 15 mins, and Kuala Perlis 25minutes. There were shops nearby, 7-Eleven just next door, food is not hard to get. it even had a big supermarket at the back, just walking distance. Room: we were greeted with a lovely scent of the lobby. It was a shoplot area where the rooms were located upstairs. We stayed in the Standard Twin room; too small but comparing it with the price I would say it's affordable. Clean beds and toilet, clean room. Aircond was working well, LCD TV has a few satellite channels, also had hot and cold shower with average water pressure. The quality of the mattress was not that good. No window so we didn't know what's the weather like outside. Extra note: Would only suggest if you are staying alone or with a partner for a short trip or when you are on a holiday which involve outdoors activity and you need a place to rest your head after a day out. More than 2 persons, the room would be really packed. For Muslims, very limited space to pray inside the room, you need to adjust a bit to follow to Qibla, am not sure if they had a prayer room outside though Parking: You can park your car in front of the hotel or at the back. The area at the back was really dark at night and not suitable for women who travel alone. The safety of our vehicle was also not guaranteed as it was an open car park (not only for hotel customers) Staff was friendly, they had our Agoda form readily printed when we checked in around 7pm. But the phone number that was printed in our hotel voucher was not the correct one, because I called up the number to know the exact location (location not detected my gps) and it was actually the phone number of a motel in Alor Setar."
