What i dont like here is the security they just look like american mafia with the yellow shirt. Please improve your food service also in here because its sometime taste like bittersweet

While the rest of the package was good, the room classified as 'Galleria' is a horribly small dungeon with no fresh air. Felt musty and smelled with smoke. Even a room change was not helpful and the staff were quite...

We had booked two superior rooms and stayed for 3 nights. The counter staff was helpful enough to help us to book similar floors which is close to each room. Bed was comfy and had very good sleep throughout. Rain shower was excellent. Best is the location as it is within the 1borneo mall itself. There is a small door...
