I stayed here twice before writing this review.
Overall, the hotel looks very nice and clean. The staff are nice and friendly, though they should smile more. The lobby looks nice, I especially liked the way they mark every room number with a small lighted sign, making it easier to find your room and to know which ones are occupied. A filtered hot/cold water dispenser is provided next to the main entrance. I like it that the main entrance will be closed at midnight, and the hotel will only be accessible by hotel guest via a side entrance secured with the same key-lock they use on the guest door, providing a good security.
Location-wise, the hotel is located at the edge of town but still close to the shopping areas, it's also convenient that the hotel itself is located above a large duty-free shopping center with the same name, unfortunately since it is facing outward from the town not many people knew about it or shop there. There isn't any sign guiding shoppers there either. There is a couple of restaurants on the same road, and plenty of food stalls serving delicious and various Malay and western food located a good walking distance in front of the hotel, there are also a few stalls selling clothes and souvenirs right across the road.
The room is quite nice, it is quite spacious, with a fixed folded table on the wall and a luxurious bathroom. I don't really understand why they use a glass wall for the bathroom though. But the water pressure is strong and there's plenty of hot water. They also provide a tea set complete with a glass pot on a nook at the entrance. There's no closet, just a hook on the wall with a couple of hangers. A small LCD TV is provided, but they put it too high on the wall. They should check the condensate water pipe for their AC unit because water are flowing on the wall from under it onto the table. There are plenty of socket points for your laptops and phone chargers and both the bed and blankets are very comfortable, I had a very good sleep.
Conclusively it is a very good budget hotel, with comfortable beds and a nice room. A good value for money for travelers on a budget.
