Good location for meeting in the centre of town. Walking distance to 7E and City Plaza shopping centre. Food is ok. All major banks are also here. Parking is available. Famous among government officers. Newly renovated. Offers good buffet.

Hotel's cleanliness is acceptable. Service level needs a bit brushing up, but perhaps it was a festive period, so there were fewer operational staff. Breakfast was a generous spread and acceptable. Guests probably complain on parking facilities, due to its location surrounded by bazaar shops, but still manageable. Room was comfortable, and nice view of Alor Setar.

Good service, good room, good location. The interior of the hotel is nice...checking in was fast and easy. It is located at the town centre...however they are not many restaurants surrounding the area so you have to get a cab to try local eateries.
