Booked this hotel on a last minute basis for Chinese new year celebration. Reason is because the location is convenient and anywhere in town is only a short drive away and of course the budget price being slapped on the hotel despite the peak season. God knows it turns out to be one of my lowest point in my journey....

location is good as nearby got KFC next to hotel, walking distant for breakfast and lunch for non halal food. Front counter is friendly. The shortcoming as follow:- a) no fridge in the room, despite name the room as "deluxe room'. look more like standard room. b) no room service to clean the room.

A simple hotel with a very clean and nice room. Free parking. Very attentive and friendly front office staff. Located at city center. Very convenience. You can cross the road to GIANT Supermarket and food courts. There are KFC and Thai food stall beside the hotel. Walking distance to CHIMES Heritage, NAGORE Squares with lots of nice cafes.

Jood07, 25 Feb 2016 | Read review
“Higher floors are much more quiet. Like most hotels, it is the type of guest that gives other guest opinions if the hotel is good or bad. If there is a problem with certain guest, let the front desk know about it so that they can do something about it. This hotel has a good record in dealing with such problems.”
