Overall excellent with minor (not so much of an) issues”

Its a proper hotel that's for sure. 1. Value for money, yes, no doubt about this. 2. Location is great, that is if you have your own transport. Its just opposite the new KK Times Square mall BUT you can't really get there on foot as the nearest crossing is some distance away. You can always catch a cab which is an abundant of them waiting at the front entrance all day long. Its near the airport, the beach and its only 5-10 mins drive to the town centre. 3. Cleanliness is good too. 4. Its a bit noisy when there are other guests at the corridor chatting away how their day went. 5. Breakfast is great too. Its really really complete with tonnes of choices. Its probably due to because the hotel has a high occupancy rate.

First of all, the rate is extremely low, compare to others. Eventhough there is some problem at first with online booking, the staff kept updating me. The breakfast is so-so with combination of Malay Chinese Western and some korean food. Highly recommended.!!👍

receptionist unable to handle client. Luckily theres a manager in duty which is able to handle my situation that day. The only thing i appreciate is the manager’s urgency. Breakfast was okay. My room was not being cleant during my stay. Not sure the cleaner on duty simply missed out cleaning my room 2 days in a row. Not recommended for business traveller. Dont even have a simple printing service.

Booked the normal room with 1 Double Bed, no Breakfast option (can't remember the room type though) but unfortunately when we arrived in the evening, only the rooms with 2 single bed option were available. Reception staff immediately gave us a complimentary upgrade to Junior Suite (still no Breakfast option but we never wanted that anyway) on the spot. This hotel has always been a favourite and this exceptional service just adds to the reason of why we love staying here.
