Fresh air and still new one on Jalan Macalister where a paradise for foods. Swimming pool could be better for more cleanliness. Room is functional and nice deco.

For the price we were paying, it was definitely worth staying as it has all the necessities and the location of the hotel is situated nearby all the places we wanted to go which makes it very convenient, checking-in and out was really efficient and fast as well!

    Had to change rooms 3 times”
    Staff were good, kind, helpful. Front office tho are compelled to sell rooms unfit for occupancy. Room 803 was unfit for occupation; toilet had an unmistakeable stink of sewage. Upon confirmation by the Duty Mgr I was moved to the 2nd floor. Which turned out to be equally bad smelling. I was then moved to the 5th floor but on examination it was smelling too. Finally I was given room 703. Hotel's Cleaning Services have the 'task of Sisyphus' trying all sorts of solutions to eliminate/mask the sewage smell; vinegar, air freshener, even siliconing the 2 waste water drainage points. The extraction fans are sucking up foul air up thro the Sewage Stacks - a problem that has existed since inception in 2013. Clearly Management has briefed the Board about this problem but to rectify matters the cost of engineering works maybe the hurdle. The Ducting/AC system is contaminated, carrying bacteria from the sewage works down below. Entering the Hotel one gets the faint whiff of treated air!

    Disappointing 3 nights stay at hotel this time round. Room spotlight & bed head lights were not working, reported to reception twice, but though they noted complaints, nothing was done. Breakfast was simple but the salad was served with some bits of rotten vegetables. Fruits plate were also in a mess with poorly cut fruits.
