While not really near much other than Komtar, it is not a long walk to Armenian Street, bar zones, other places of interest. A very basic, simple room, it is clean, staff are helpful, simple (free) breakfast included. Good across the board!

A 2 star motel at best”

Got a room on the first floor. The door lock is spoilt, no where at all to hang wet towels in toilet or room, old creaking bed, moldy toilet and the wall of the room is basically the facade wall of the building with a big ancient wooden door. between rustic and rundown, its definitely not the former.

Nice place to stay you can walk from komtar terminal bus to going here only 10minutes location is SUPERB Near to famous Dimsum in macalister Zim Sum restaurant only one thing room lights can't be turned off at night because it's too dark if it's turned off, the indicator lights are connected to each other. one lamp should be provided that can be turned off and turned on for use at night so that it can save more electricity.

Bad smell, low privacy, unfriendly staff”

There is 2-level-hotel and ONLY staircase provided. It's inconvenient for those who has knee problem. Most of the doorknob (side) are broken. When enter to the room, very strong old wood smell, "shit" smell comes from toilet even flush more than 5 times. No air-con & TV remote control provided. We request to change to another room because of the too strong smell. The staff seems like know the problems and seems unwilling to take another room key for us. Luckily the room don't have the smells. However, the floor got holes and can see thru to level-1. No bathroom door. Very weak sound insulation.

The room is spacious, clean and with good very ventilation. One drawback will be the hotel is close to a futsal court and it's not too quiet during night time. Another worth to mention point is that it is slightly far from the street art and tourist attractions but there are plenty of foods and facilities like banks, clinics, and convenient stores nearby the hotel.

If you're looking for cheap stay, this might be your choice..but if you like to sleep well in this hotel, you might need to think twice. our room is facing exact futsal. players were so noisy shouting, yeah they are having fun there but you can't sleep. room acoustics was so bad until you can hear footsteps in the early morning. towels were so old. but overall it's what you paid for.
