      Newly renovated hotel. Pros: 1. New furniture 2. New design 3. Affordable rate 4. Location wise walking distance to eateries, convenience stores and bank Cons: 1. Sound proofing wall 2. We get the room by roadside so the noise from outside can be heard, not recommended for light sleeper 3. The room that we get was dusty and have spider web All in all everything else was great!

      The room was way beyond my expectation and worth the price. However, next time probably should have request for room facing the other side. The room was not sound proof so you can hear the traffic sound so loud. Not recommended for light sleeper.

      Noisy and Unsafe”

      Booked this hotel through AGODA, my room was facing the city main road, the loud noise of the vehicles was from early morning till past midnight, just couldn’t sleep at all, approached the counter next day morning for a room change to another side, was told all the rooms were taken, mind you all, it was during COVID-19 MCO time, and this hotel was fully booked with no empty room ? And there is no personal door latch to lock your room, anyone with a room key can just open your door, happened to me everyday during my stay here, even though the Do Not Disturb sign was hanging outside, yet the cleaner still open my door in the morning while we were sleeping, highlighted to counter, yet this act still repeated. Strongly not recommended.

      First time i stepped into the room, i saw a moving bug below the Queen bed. They need to improve the hygiene and cleanliness of the room. Since I'm not very picky hence the cheap price promotion, i'd still recommend this place for those looking for short stay.

      Nice, clean, and good location. Just don’t ask for anything from the staff. You’ll just get a blank look and “I don’t know”. I liked that they had a water refilling station rather than bottled waters in the room. Also the water pressure was really good. If you’re not fussed about guest service, I would recommend this place.

      Cleaner problem”

      The Location is great near to food store n shopping mall. Bad is the cleaner attitude Staying here for 4 days. Ver bad experience during the last day stay. I left the room for work in the morning 9am and personally hand over the access card to reception for make up the room. When I'm back abt 5.10pm. Disappointed me that the room did not clean up at all. For the past few days I stay, I also notice that the cleaner from 2 floor which I stay. Either forgetful or not responsible, always unfinish he/her duty .. Eg.. Forgotten to refill the tooth brush, hand soap, cups which left in the toilet and 1 time bath room did not clean up.
