    This is new apartment accros to Komtar”

    This hotels is an apartment, if you stay here you must contact the staff with intercomm near room 239. The lobby hotel office on the back street at Jl. Lebuh Noordin. So we must wait the staff at the corridor in front of the room. To enter the room you must carry your luggage upstairs. The room is quite new, and have big master bedroom, and its nice. The main issue is the security, if you entered the PIN on the front door be careful you must see that no other person see your PIN. But overall its oke.

    Great location and very very spacious like apartment with big living room and 3 bedrooms. Very new and clean the whole apartment. will definitely stay here again. Only con i would say is check in arrangement as there is no reception and you need to wait for the staff to come and you need to stop your car aside(busy main road) to wait for check-in. Other than this - everything is superb with the price!!!

    Good location but a bit noisy ”

    The hotel has no reception. All you have to do is to inform them your arrival time and they will arrange a staff to come and do the check in for you. We arrived at around 5:30pm, but the room was not ready yet. The staircase leading to the room was stuck with something like pillows and blankets. The room was cleared after the check in staff arrived and asked the cleaning staff to clear off the stuffs in the staircase. If you have large luggage, you have to carry the luggages upstair on your own. The room is spacious with full amenities, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, razor and even washing machine with clothes drying function. The location is super good. It's right opposite to Komtar, and there is a super market nearby. Food stalls and night market are within walking distance. It is a bit noisy at night, which is a side effect of the superb location. The main problem we encountered was the clog of drainage in the shower rooms. It took us a long time to finish the showers.

    It has what it states on the website. Just that if you are unfit to climb 24 steps from the entrance to rooms, well this is not a place for you. Need to call the hotel and wait for him to come by to meet you and open the place for you, it is fine for such a deal. Many retail selections nearby ,there is the Gama supermart departmental store.

    Spacious property but need some improvement”

    Pros: - near Komtar and many near restaurant to choose - washing machine was available - have sofa bed in living room Cons: - the door was directly face to public pedestrian. It would be safer if the hotel can add inside door so the guest will feel safer - there is only stair available, we find it difficult to bring up our luggage. It would be better if the hotel can provide "ramp" for the luggage to easily bring it up to second floor - Air conditioner too close to the bed It would be better to re-arrange the bed position

    The place itself is superb, but not very clean with sticky floor and stained sheets. Parking was also an issue since the staff did not properly inform you of the exact parking area, maybe a map to the parking place might have been better. We were also locked inside the hotel due to faulty lock. Overall just an okay stay.

    ALMOST PERFECT ACCOMODATION IN GEORGETOWN”

    There are few things I have to say, why I say it is the perfect hotel for me: 1. 10/10 Cleanliness 2. Big space and big room for group trip/family trip 3. There are: 1 king size (Master Room), 2 queen size (Bedroom 1), 1 queen size & 1 single bed (Bedroom 2) 4. There also provide a dinning room and kitchen with full facilities (spoon, plate, pot, fork, etc.) 5. They even have washing machine!!! And the laundry detergent 6. And in kitchen, don't worry for the cook smell (if you cooked), there is an exhaust fan. 7. Middle refrigerator with enough space for you to stock some food 8. Two TV, one in master room, one in the living room. 9. 2 bathrooms with hair wash & body wash, towels are definitely enough for you, toothbrush etc also have, but just don't have showercap. 10. Hair dryer also provided, and is not the small size one, so you can dry your hair with no worries and save time. 11. Just the parking location, hotel and lobby is not at the same place a little bit troublesome...

    We were so amazed at how spacious and clean the apartment was during our stay! It was our first time booking this boutique and we were glad we did so. There were 5 of us and all of us had so much space to relax and enjoy this apartment. The kitchenette is a delight as we could prepare light meals and relax over some wine at the huge living area. There is even a proper dining table for us! Please take note there is no in-house reception at the property and so please contact the hotel prior to your arrival. The check-in lounge was not ready when we were there but the last we visited and stayed at their sister property, the check-in lounge is located one street away from this property. We will definitely book this when we travel in a large group again!

But still we need to wait 20 minutes. Then when the door is having problem with the password, you guys still let us stay outside the house for 30 minutes. Please improve your services. Anyway, surprisingly, u guys arrived on time 12 pm when check out. 😂 thats the “good” side of yours. Keep improve guys. The house is da bomb👍🏻 but the services is 👎🏻

    Bed Bugs”

    Bed bugs found in room on last day morning checkout. My child and one other family member were bitten. Only an apology was offered on hotel’s part when a squashed bed bug was presented as evidence. All the pleasantries of the stay went out the window. The sheer amount of laundry we had to dry heat at the laundromat and bags we had to sanitize made us never want to return again. Many beds at a good price per night probably meant that the bedsheets were not changed upon each guest’s departure,hence the bed bugs infestation. Stay at your own risk.
