Worth stay but need think twice for the breakfirst”

- good location - staff very good - my room was clean and comfortable..only the lights near the entrance inside the room was broken 2 of them..but not disturbing for me.. - the room seems not that sound proof..either the next door guests talked to loud or bcz i had a connecting room door, i m not so sure..but i really can here the next door talked.. - the only i can say is, i am dissapointed with the breakfirst..bcz of mco, they serving as meal set and not buffet (i am ok with that)..but the size of the meal was too small for me..what i like was the coffee tenom and the omelette (tasty but small portion and not many ingredients)..the cornflakes tasted weird.. - menu for breakfirst were too limited..and i was suprised no nasi lemak served..only noodle-based, english breakfirst set..my partner and i need to order food delivery after the breakfirst.. - would i come back?..YES definitely, but just for room stay..not breakfirst..the location was near the city centre and u have a lot of food deliveries there with so many options of better foods
