Everything was fine”

Parking is on public spaces which is expected for the price, since the parking spots are green which are the cheapest it's fine. There is a convenience store on the opposite shop lot, very near. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and the hotel is not far from town and the beach. Staff was friendly, no lift which is fine. Room is clean and well furnished.

Fulfilled my needs”

I needed a place to shower due to water interruption at my own place. The room was enough. Towels and simple coffee and a tv is provided. No hair dryer so please bring your own. Water heater is good so I have no complaints whatsoever. Nothing spectacular to expect and my best wishes to the management for still keeping things in good condition. Overall, a good place to spend the night and for the price, they deserve a 5 star.

A plesant stay. Nice small & cosy hotel with good free wifi. I was on one day transit. Located at Tanjung Aru & near to the airport. The only backdraw is the mattress, the spring is kind “hurting” my body. Need to change.

Budget hotel near the airport. Great place to stay if you are on a budget.”

Nice place to stay if you are on a budget. Cost me 6 MYR from aiport to hotel but if you can contact them and have thier shuttle scheduled, they can pick you up for free. You will have to take a cab to get to different malls. I paid 7RM to get to the mall via grab. Hawkers dwnstairs are open 24/7 also an Orange convenient store is open 24/7 which is a few steps away from hitel. Nearby kfc is also accessible via walk. Overall, this is a nice hotel. Wifi is not working inside the rooms but if you go to the lounge, you can get good connection. Hope this helps. Book via agoda cause it will cost you more if you walk in. Goodluck guys!

No free parking, parking is charged at RM1/hour. No lift. Limited TV channel and not clear. Different shops around, easy to find anything. I love the fact this place is not too busy except the night I stayed there was noisy that came from like some youngsters maybe tested or raced their cars with loud exhaust sound. The shampoo dispenser was broken. The aircond was broken too the next day.
