I did not experience extreme delays in check-in or check-out as experienced by a previous reviewer. I was promptly dealt with & given a room.
My room was clean but it did not have a view. All I could see out of my window was a plastic wall. It was probably the roof over the carpark that lights up at night.
The bed was soft but the pillows were limp. I prefer fluffy pillows. Nonetheless, I still got a good night's sleep on the bed.
There was internet available for free at very high speeds via LAN cable.
My only problem with the room was the shower head. It was too short & I could not get it to aim higher for a tall person like me. In the end, I had to bend over or squat to wash my head. Pretty annoying.
The breakfast spread has a lot of variety & the food was of good quality. The food was mostly Asian or Malaysian. There were also pastry & bread at a far corner.
The hotel is located close to the waterfront & it is within walking distance to the city centre, malls, night market, Filipino market & late-night eateries. The food at the eateries across the street did not taste good at all when I went there for a late night meal. I had fried rice which was bland & guava juice which was diluted.
This is an ageing hotel in need to refurbishment but it is okay for RM250+. I'm sure if one were to look harder one would be able to find cheaper & better accommodation.
