Difficult to locate hotel reception.
I booked 2 rooms for my stay from 8 to 10 September. As our flight arrived late in the night, upon arrival at the building we could not locate the reception of the hotel as the hotel's reception is located on the 4th level and also that as the building also include offices, the main lift lobby area was locked and we could get in. We went round the building and located another lift lobby area. There were no signs indicating the hotel reception. At checking in, we were surprised that the 2 rooms we booked had king size bed when at the time of booking some 1.5 months ago, I requested for 1 room with a king bed and the other room to have 2 single beds. The receptionist explained that the change was instructed by management. I would have preferred that the hotel sent me an earlier notification of being unable to fulfill our bed preferences. Otherwise stay at hotel was good but the hotel looks dated and the corrider leading to the rooms smelt of stale dampness. It is centrally located and within 3 minutes of walking to Jln Padungan.

The building, corridor and room were all in desperate need for removation, especially the bathroom. I only got two bath towels and I had to ask to have them changed after a couple of days. The hotel is not environmentally friendly. The aircon was always on even if I turned it off on my way out, it got turned back on when I was away. The bathroom was moudy. It was not a four stars. For the price I guest one should not ask for too mcuh. It is very close to Pullman and Hilton and is walking distance to a few good local restuarants and the river front. The staff were friendly and very helpful otherwise. Wifi was very slow
