Adequate lighting and efficient air-conditioning for a budget class hotel. Great way to learn about the culture and sights as the hotel sits on a junction of three or four main streets!

Basic 2 star hotel, very old Hong Kong style. If you're a washroom person then this might not suit you, toilet bowl cannot flush smoothly. Try avoid room near to lift, very noisy at late night and early morning. Very limited parking space and first come first serve basic, even road side also very limited parking space.

This hotel is old but is being refurbished. Good air con and bed. Helpful desk staff. Noise from the busy road below certainly kept us wake on the 7th floor, as single glazed windows. Good central location, short walk to Komtar and historic centre is round the corner too. Wifi intermittent as they warned us, so no surprises there. View...

Stayed here 3 times. Stayed in double room and family rooms before. Double room is small but family room pretty big, still have space for little children to run around. Rooms appear damp and carpets worn-out. No restaurant or breakfast provided. Many Indian and Chinese food outlets around the area. Good for a few nights'sleep only.
