      Generally a very pleasant comfortable stay. However some things not fixed in the room - one of the bedside lights had no wire to it and therefore could not be switched on. the room safe handle was broken and it could not be locked even though instructions were followed, something wrong with the digital mechanism. Even though the hotel was informed nothing was done to fix it.

      Good & bad

      Shower area is not enclosed, so water wets the whole toilet. Heater tripped during shower. The wooden floor felt sticky & damp. Not enough English channels on tv.

      Good room marred by faulty toilet

      Good location. Spacious room with wide living area. Unfortunately toilet seat kept falling off despite us asking them to fix it. Only temporary band-aid solution done. Problem persisted throughout our stay.

      Short Grab Distance away from City Center

      Friendly front desk, quiet neighborhood. There is a night market along the same street of the hotel, lots of variety food to try out. The room is clean and nicely spaced out. Overall, a pleasant stay.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Unprofessional staff. Asked about availabity of metered taxi and staff offered to call one. Turned out it is a call taxi where driver refused to turn on meter and wanted 18myr for a ride that was 8myr by grab. Asked about pop up market and staff said no such thing. We found it ourselves. No wardrobes in master bedroom except a bed n bedside tables No late checkout. Chargable after noon. Noise from upstairs and next room.

      I got a stay at this nice hotel at a well discounted price. So the normal rate would be much higher. However, if you could also get a ton of discounts to book and stay at this hotel, then i strongly suggest u take it. The staffs were good and well mannered. The room is huge with a lot of wide spaces. Not your typical small cramped cheap rooms. I mean for a room of two persons, u can actually fit another 10 or more. The only downside, there is no bathtub, at least in my previously booked room. Not sure about other higher level rooms. In a summary, totally recommended!
