This hotel is located pretty centrally - was approx. 20 MYR from airport in taxi. The Hotel is only small but very cosy and friendly. It is still new so the rooms are very well furnished and very presentable with a lot of character. Although rooms are small they are more than adequate and very comfortable and clean. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and all parts of the service were excellent
- i would not be surprised to see this place in any future editions of 'rough guide' or 'lonely planet' as it is great value. Further benefits are 1) the excellent restuarant called 'Shoney's' which is connected to the Hotel - the food and service here is great - again the decor was cool and there are also 3 large screens. 2) free internet access for 1/2 hour 3) shower and laundry facilities were excellent and 4) there are 2 cinemas just up the road!! I would say only downside is a tv would be a big bonus in each room.
