The driver that picked me from the airport was very professional and good service. I am the kind of client who does not like someone who talks a lot. I value my me time, so engage me a lot cause I have a lot to think about and I am very tired

I have always had a good stay at the Royal Palm. Their junior suites are superb. the FULL SUITES are even beyond superb. Try it. For the price, you will leave with a smile on your face. Trust me. I have been around the country and the world.

Aha Royal Palm hotel is ideally situated in walking distance from Gateway. The hotel itself has a business feel to it rather than a holiday maker, but still very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed, making it feel more like an apartment than a hotel room. The breakfast is rather average unfortunately, but other than this small...

I stayed in the junior suite. Upon checking into my room, the AC and wifi was not working. I proceeded to change room to another suite. The other suite resulted in me checking into a room next to a room where renovation work was taking place. At 3am I could hear the workmen completing their work. The toilet drainage smelt...

All amenities situated opposite Gateway Shopping Centre, rooms are luxurious and spacious, friendly staff, i highly recommend this hotel as i have stayed in many others but nothing compares. The only downfall is that there are no ocean views but thats not why we stayed there.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable (especially the penthouse). Rooms are clean. Breakfast was nice but the service can be improved :-( Overall I would recommend this hotel for business or holiday travellers.

“Please provide cutlery in the kitchen or at least an option to request for it from dining. This is because you also have a microwave which would suggest you expect guests to warm up food which could have been bought from outside the hotel.”
