“Good location and .... that`s all”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We stayed there for one night,before leaving Malaysia and it wasn`t very good choice. Location is good - next to JB Sentral station and Woodland but it means noise all the night - forget about good sleeping time. The room looked clean before we found a bigcockroach. On the 17th floor! Breakfast - nothing special - watch out for hard-boiled eggs - they didn`t peel it.
Second point only for the room space. Summary - only when location is the most important.

Reviewed 15 October 2011

Im staying from 10 oct 2011 intull 13 oct 2011 wth my boyfriend in rooom 1814. We are not feel welcoming by the reception staff,no greeting no nothing and they are not even smile. When we go the room and the room just nice with the view. The room bit old with hard mattress and the toilet is quite old.
One thing i notice the no fridge in the room, maybe you should think to put it the room. Channel tv is very bed and so bad.
The next day we went for breakfast and one again you staff is not welcoming us to enjoy the food. I think what your staff did is correct because your food is the worst i ever had in breakfast buffet. The next day we dont go because we know what kind of food you serve.
Over all the hotel location is nice, near to the city center but the service and the facilities in not good. i might not return to the hotel again.

Reviewed 15 July 2011

The location of this hotel is great, right next to the Malaysian border and the Causeway, and one of the first hotels you'll notice when walking from the station.

Rooms are old, weary and not spotlessly clean (stains in the toilet, on the floor and in the bed linens) but very big and with nice views from the higher rooms. The rest of the building looks way past its glory days as well. Part of the building is in fact an almost entirely deserted mall. Very creepy.

Breakfast is downright bad : the fire under most of the warm food was out, therefore the warm food was cold. Toast was burned on one side. Pretty much the only thing that seemed okay enough to eat was some milk with cereal. On top of that, the breakfast room looks drearier than a pre-war German rest stop by the Autobahn.

Room Tip: High floors have nice views

Compared to JA Residence Hotel this hotel is FAR MUCH MORE BETTER. First day i.e Apr 02' 2011 me and my wife check-into this hotel. Front office staff was ready to serve attitude and ready to help. Room was clean and cozy wth some coffee, water bottle, soap and other necessary things provided.
Wide spread of Buffet Breakfast. Hot and good (Must Try).

I'll recommend this hotel for those who wants Value For Money hotel.
