I stayed in this hotel for three nights as I attended a conference in a nearby hotel.
The hotel is a mere 10 minutes from the airport (not peak hours) making it a convenient place to stay. The check in and check out staff were helpful and friendly.
On the negative side, my room looked a lot nicer on their website and my allergies were triggered as soon as I entered the room. Perhaps the bedding needs thorough cleaning, I don't know. However, the beds were pretty comfy. Part of the wall had scuff marks and the bathroom had scum in between the tiles. On the plus side, there was good water pressure and plenty of hot water.
The wifi worked fine on my laptop but not on my hand phone which was quite odd. Breakfast was OK and there was variety everyday. I did appreciate getting a vegetarian omelette though I did not specify for it. The breakfast lady said the meat was non halal although they do not serve pork.
The riverside was nice and the river smelled better after a downpour. I like watching the egrets nesting in the tree and the kampong people on their boats.
Overall, like this hotel. It is quiet, comfy and restful and there is a cafe nearby that serve delicious fried bananas with cheese.
