“Nice Location, Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I stay here for a couple occasion either my vacation and my business trip. All I can say it's that I'm very satisfied during my time stayed in this hotel. Very polite staff, always smiles and greet you every time you pass. Room is clean and comfort, even though the toilet is a little small but it's not a real big deal for me. Location is just great. Shopping mall it's beside and opposite this hotel. Waterfront area, which is my favorite place, it's just 5 minutes by walk. Breakfast is good, they don't have a lot of variety though. Overall this is a nice hotel, good location, great staff, I will definitely coming back to this hotel again.

I stayed for two nights. Initially I had only booked for one night and since I had to extend my stay by one more night, this was done in a breeze. The room was clean and well kept. Walking distance to some shopping malls and there's a good selection of eateries and pubs nearby. Staff were friendly and went out of the way to help. Would recommend this hotel to others as it is conveniently located and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: The cheaper the room, the smaller it is.

Reviewed 9 August 2013

Well appointed small rooms in a 4-story hotel.

There are interior rooms with no window to the outside. These will have the lowest rates.

Room small but well-designed, bathroom attractive.

Excellent Internet bandwidth but only in the lobby!

Large flat-screen TV has Fox sports (1 channel), news, and Fox Movies Premium channel. Also a Chinese and Malaysia channel.

Comfort plus: Non-smoking hotel. Instant coffee and tea with a kettle in the room. Cold, new fridge, very cold air con.

Comfort minus: demand water heater for the shower only warms, no way to increase the temperature.

Safety plus: 3 exit stairs. Locking safe box in the room. Sprinkler system.

Safety minus: hallways have many turns, and there are short, dead-end halls that will be a trap during smoke and fire.

Restaurant downstairs available for meals most days. Evening dinner is expensive but a nice Brazilian all-you-can eat BBQ.

Walk just a block to McDonalds, or across the street to KFC and Pizza Hut.

Close to many bars, restaurants, shopping, and the river walk.

Easy to catch a bus from the nearby Margarita hotel to the resorts.

Room Tip: Interior rooms will be more quiet and cheaper. Street side rooms will have some traffic noise.

The staff at this hotel went far out of there way to help us whenever they could. They always made us feel that we could ask them for help with anything during our stay and that they would deliver.

Our room was very nice and well kept. The food at the restaurant was okay. Would recommend this hotel to others as it is in a great location - just steps from the waterfront, the staff are amazing and the rooms are great.

Located near the shopping centers and Taman Kereta. Good location to stay, shop and eat. The room was clean and comfortable but I found the toilet was too small. All of the staff were nice and warm. It was a pleasant stay after all. Will come again.

Reviewed 17 April 2013

The room was a bit tired with scuff marks, stains etc and the bed very hard but it is a really fantastic location for wandering the city streets and riverfront. A trip down to the market, Sarawak Museum etc should be by taxi. Shopping centres very close by. The breakfast is a bit basic but the service of staff could not be faulted
