“Strategic Location - City Centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Pros:
1) Strategically located in city centre.

2) Walking distance to - a shopping mall (Berjaya), a private hospital, 'makan places' (eateries) - mamak & night market (Saturday night).

3) Room was ok, cleanliness and everything was in order.

Cons:
1) If you choose to park your car at the covered parking area, be careful when you're going up and coming down as it is a bit stiff.

2) Buffet breakfast - ok, and nothing extra. If you are lucky, you might be able to see the supervisor having breakfast next to you, hahaha...

3) No complimentary in-room wifi & newspaper.

4) For 1st timer, you might have a difficulty in finding the hotel's lobby from the covered parking area.

This hotel is quite old.

if you had no choice and you have to check in this hotel, please, do not take room 815.

the air conditioner is so loud its like sleeping inside a helicopter cabin.

the bed spread is old and looks like a spent rag....the sheets are not so white too.

the shower attachment needs some serious repair.

If you can...spend a little more and stay somewhere else....i was surprised to see there were other hotels nearby....its good i was here only for a very short stay.

If you do not have too high an expectation this place is quite ok. Rooms and decor are typical and standard. The location is excellent as it is in the centre of town and within walking distance to many places of interest.
I was given free wifi for all the days of my stay there.

This is my second time staying here and it is still not as what I expected. The rooms and reasonably clean - it can be cleaner but the "stuffy" environment just doesn't make it a comfortable place to stay. I had my air-cond leaking and the whole carpet was wet when I woke up in the morning.

Room Tip: Tell the receptionist you would want to check the room first.

Frequently travel on business trip.

Receptionist said that all rooms have wireless..... ONLY to find out that it is NOT free AFTER I had checked in. Should have told me upfront and not after I'd checked in. Felt cheated.

Worst, all the "prepaid" card to use the wireless had expired. I cannot even purchase it and was told that the lobby wireless is also down.

Room is clean but old. Towels are old. Kettle is old. Swimming pool "lock".

No mineral water provided. Tap water NOT clean at all thus equal to NO drinking water and cannot make coffee/tea.

With the room rate they charge, they should have provided better service/facilities.

i initially thought that this hotel was one of the more 'higher end ' hotel because of the name. i was dissapointed.

parking was dodgy, rooms were really badly maintained, towels i mistook for the ones for mopping the floor, tv had only a few channels, breakfast wasnt too good. i only liked the pancakes, staff was ok except the counter staff-very unhelpful and unfriendly.

the only good thing was the strategic location mid town

the stay was only worth half of what we paid.
