“Great accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Booked through AsiaRooms,com for 2 rooms & 2 nights. The room still spacious after added an extra bed. Services are excellent & prompted. Hotel staff are very friendly. Ample indoor parking lot. Swimming pool was nice & clean. Food not so variety but quite well to our family. We were only taking breakfast.

Room Tip: View either facing the city or pool side.

Great Great Breakfast though everything else in the 90's. Restaurant and Pool on the 11th floor. Breakfast open till 10.30am so you can do your brunch there and skip your lunch ha ha.
The concierge.... errrrr I didn't see them so dont expect that service. Lift slow moving. Got 2 massage chairs under the escalator infront of the lift.... I wonder why they put it there? Also got a cafe at the lobby but it was closed at 11pm last night.
If you are really tired near midnight get a room here. Drop yourself. Later in the morning shower yourself (the water pressure excellent). Get a good breakfast at 10am. Then check out. It would be very very nice indeed.

It was a short getaway with the big family. We booked through booking.com and checked in and out went very well. Staffs helped us accordingly. The rooms were pretty spacious. Location was ok.

The breakfast variety was not much and same type of food during our 2 nights stay.

We didn't get to use the swimming pool due to the tight schedule we had. It looked ok though.

The big turn off was the cleanliness of the room.
The fridge was very dirty between the rubbers at the door. It was so very black and I had to scrub it off cos I couldn't imagine keeping our food and medicine in that condition.
We also found an apple core, behind our bed. I guessed the room wasn't properly cleaned too.

Overall, the price was ok. But I won't be coming back there again.

A good hotel that is value for money. Stayed here a few times whenever had business meetings n event in JB. Room a bit at rundown side but still acceptable. Pool was ok. Buffet breakfast spread were great.

Hotel location is near to eateries, sundry shops n malls. The nearby Banafee Village Cafe was wonderful where food was yummy. We just have to walk back to the hotel after our heavy dinner there.

Overall, it was a great value for money stay!

A short trip recently to this moderate hotel. OK for short trip as the facilities is also moderate. A bit rundown rooms. Good point, breakfast is great! Don't miss the Banafee Village Restaurant nearby, their having live band and great singers too!

I checked in with my family for a one night stay. Though we were given a room on the high floor, the room was in poor condition. Damaged bed side lamp, flickering balcony lights, leaking bathtub. We decided to put up with it as it was only a one night stay. Lo & behold, when we woke up the next morning, we discovered the bed & pillows to be infested with bed bugs.
My family & I were all fed on by the bugs. When I reported the matter to the reception manager, his attitude was nonchalant as if it was an everyday affair that they have reported cases of bed bugs. None of the staff were empowered to look into service recovery in any way. I had to wait & repeat my story to 3 managers before they acceded to a 50% discount off the room rate. It was finally when I refused to pay a cent that they agreed to waive the charges for the night stay. We also requested for simple compensation for new clothers as we threw away all the clothes we were wearing for fear of bringing home the bugs. The hotel not only refused to pay such compensation, they also refused to laundry our clothes for collection another day on the basis that such services are sub-contracted out. it was a most frustrating & scary hotel stay we ever had. The staff knows next to nothing about service recovery & the rooms are very run down and old. Hence, don't be deceived by their affodable rates. Its not worth the risk of unwittingly bringing home the bed bugs!

Room Tip: Just don't patronise this hotel.

I checked in a bit late at 5 pm , but room still not clean properly , dirty toilet and smelly room. No towel provided . I requested for a towel but need to call the housekeeping 3 times. They only sent the towel to me after 2 hours waiting . Pillow and bed smelly . Breakfast is quite ok but overall service was unsatisfied. Will not stay there anymore .
