We stayed one night at their Superior room. Room size quite spacious. Overall clean and comfortable. It is located next to Times Square, good for shopping and in the morning, just behind the hotel is the morning market and local eateries at a kopitiam.
Before we check-in, Penang friend told us that this is a love motel and previously had some prostitution activities going around, but the local authority got rid of it and should be now safe. We did not see any of these and are glad with our stay.
The only setback is Parking. After our late night food hunt, we parked at the roadside opposite the hotel. (Hotel don't have parking)
An Indian guy came over to collect parking fee of RM5 from us. We paid but when insisted on the parking receipt, he say he did not have it and told us to get it from hotel reception. When we check-out the next morning, I ask from the front desk and they said needed the receipt for parking reimbursement. But we told them, the Indian guy did not give us any. So we were not able to claim it back. So beware, future hotel guests, make sure you get a receipt before paying. Some guys on the streets are taking advantages it seems.
