Stayed at this on 11th - 12th Nov to attend a wedding in Muar. This is rather a "backpacker" hotel...as their rooms rates are the cheapest in town so you don't expect anything fancy. If you travelling by bus this hotel is nearest from Bentayan bus terminal and it is only 7 minutes walking distance. The rooms are fitted with... More

Stayed here during the festive season. The room is clean and nice with spacious bathroom for a budget hotel and flat screen TV and power shower. The reception was very friendly although she was attending to another 3 guests.

This hotel is just opposite the Trinity Presbyterian Church where I pastored The rate of a double room is about RM.100. Room is simple but with flat TV and attached Bath room..

Good room, service and staff especially receptionist Miss Kamidah who is very helpful and gracious in processing check in/out. Hotel location is about 20m walk to Bentayan Chinese Hawker centre for dinner, must try the Cha Kway Teow, Chinese Satay, Fried Sotong and Otar-otar. The hotel next door breakfast Dim Sum shop is quite average in term of food quality.

The location is quite good, within walking distance to hawker center, shopping center and the wet market. We got the deluxe room, but when we entered, there's obviously cigarette smell, even though we asked for a non-smoking room.
