Fast check in. Front desk was helpful in assisting us to arrange transport and guiding us the location of attractions. For those who are interested in Mural Street Art, map is available at the front desk. Tight security, as we need our room access card to operate the elevator and enter the swimming pool. Rich variety of breakfast provided, We...

Each room had two king single beds, which was fine. The lobby is clean, fresh and modern. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Upon arrival...

Stayed here with family. Clean, spacious, well organised. Location is perfect. Stuff very helpful. Nice gym and pool. Would recommend this place for sure. Earlier saw somebody saying that taxi cost them twice as much if ordered from hotel but we experienced quite the opposite. Nice hotel overall.

I really liked the room for the price we got. The nearby food places were also very good, especially the fried fish bee hoon at the hawker area just next to the hotel. Overall I would have rated 4 stars if not for the experience of the driver forgetting to pick us up from batu ferringhi. If they forgot and...
