stayed here for just 1 night during the busy public holiday in February. since I couldn't find a hotel for family I had to booked this place. based from previous reviews this place doesn't give me good feeling.
Booking was easy, made through phone call. We were given a 3-bedroom apartment, which in my opinion was too expensive at RM400/nite. if it is not public holiday then the rate is a bit lower but still high. Below is my review:
Apartment: Clean and comfortable, large hall. Balcony view is a quiet residential area. TV comes with Astro channels. There's free wifi with strong connection in the apartment.
Rooms: Beds and pillows are comfortable. But when we came, the bedsheets were crinkled and not folded in properly. There was a narrow built in closet to hang clothes.
Toilet: The master bedroom ensuite with toilet. The two bedrooms (double and single) share a common toilet outside. The toilet is clean.
Kitchen: Table too small to accommodate larger family. For the price we paid, I expect at least normal lipton/boh/nescafe etc tea but they provided unknown brands.
There are mugs, plates, spoon and forks provided.
Service: The receptionist and staff were quick to response to your request. One bad service was in the next morning when I asked to borrow an iron when the lady on the phone rudely said that no irons left and I should have asked for one when check-in. They should not put the problem on customer. Feeling unsatisfied, I called her back and quickly she told that her staff is sending the iron. So that was quick action.
Location: Not centrally located in Georgetown but this place is in good location. Near to feringghi, straits quay and gurney drive. Going around with car is no problem here. Parking is limited but we can park at the nearby houses. There was a guard patrolling.
Overall stay was okay and nice. But i felt my wallet hurt soo much since this place is a bit expensive. Its a bargain if the bill is shared within large family members or group of friends, but if you're the one who pays, find some other place.
