We stayed for 5 nights during Christmas week. At that time, the hotel was only open for a month. The room and bathroom was large. Airconditioning, wifi, tv, drinking water and towels were included. What the room didn't have was a fridge, kettle or phone. As the building structure is such that there is an atrium at the centre and most of the rooms are around it, noise travels easily even within levels. We could hear people talking and showering next door and guests from a far away room creating a din at 2am. The window was facing a blank wall, but we were fine with that as we didn't want the sun coming in.
Our biggest gripe was the poor housekeeping during the 6 days we were there. There was hair all over the place in the bathroom when we checked in - on the walls, in the sink, on the countertop. When we checked out nearly a week later, hair that was on the hairdryer when we checked in still was not cleared. Needless to say we didn't use it. The room was hardly cleaned daily. The floor was not mopped/swept and the toilet was not cleaned properly. This is really appalling as we have never had a problem with the cheaper, older and smaller Tune Hotels Downtown.
The water pressure was so low, the power shower was practically useless. There was a mosquito infestation in the lobby. There is a small carpark behind the building but you can never seem to get a lot inside. The only other option was to park on the street outside the lobby and opposite the road.
Location wise, it is a short 5-10 minute walk to 1st Avenue mall, Komtar and Prangin Mall. There is a coffee shop opposite to the left selling great wanton noodles and a famous oyster omelette If you explore the area to the right, you will also find some food stalls where you can watch the bustling morning activities. This is also a great location to begin exploring the famous art murals nearby.
