Stayed for 2 days on the Labour Day (SNG/Malaysia) weekend. We were greeted by Hasan and he immediately provided a refreshment as we checked in. The room was tastefully decorated with local wood and beautiful marble; we were also fortunate enough to get the room with the air well/courtyard view which made it nice to wake up to the morning...

Perfect location in the heart of the historic area. Historic building but totally refurbished with modern amenities and special touches such as the marble bathroom and rain shower. The hotel provides lovely bathrobes and slippers and quality toiletries to their guests. The breakfast focused on Asian tastes and very little Western choices. No protein such as eggs, only sugar laden...

Thought this hotel was very good. It's located very central (we were able to walk everywhere) but in a quiet street so you get the best of both worlds. The staff were really friendly and the hotel itself was clean and well looked after. There are a couple of points to be aware of - in the rooms we had...

Small hotel but the accommodation was very nice. The Manager and staff was always ready to help. The breakfast was excellent especially the specially brewed coffee. The room was small but very well planned. The bathroom was very well designed especially the powerful rain shower. The toiletries was surprisingly well stocked too. Close to Jonker street and night market.

We loved this oldworld hotel, right in the old part of town. It's near the river and easy walking to most of the things you'll want to visit. Our room was a nice size with a balcony by the river, but I think some of the other rooms my be a bit on the small size.
