Following the instructions to retrieve the keys to this apartment, we drove passed the letter box and couldn't find a place to park our car. We made another round and as my husband was the one driving, I have to alight quickly, dash to the letter box and ran back before someone starts honking at him in a single lane street. No need to ask any personnel as they are as blur.
There was an instruction to the carpark but we were confused as we couldn't find the 3A level. It was actually refer to L4 then turn into 3A. Anyway we parked into the allocated 1 slot and unloaded our luggages and took it to the apartment. Luckily the distance to the lift was just very near. Only the following day we were told we should park at 3B instead or else the wheels will be clamped and it cost RM150 to release the clamp.
It surprised us to see how the hallway look like. Very commercial and unwelcome. Along the passage, there are companies among the residences and the rental units.
Immediately after we put our luggage in, a lady stood outside passed me a receipt and requested for RM500 as deposit. This was not stated upon booking online. My husband had to rush down to the ATM to cash out.
This SOHO is very commercially made, so it was no close to cosiness.
We checked for our additional bed but there wasn't, upon calling them, we realized it was actually an ultra thin IKEA mattress and a fleece blanket. Though the deco of the apartment looks stylist and clean. It was not comfortable at all. With mini size couch and 2 arm chairs, we found ourselves sitting on the floor most of the time instead.
The bedrooms are upstairs with a tiny balcony where the router was placed.
The stairs vibrates as we climb. The room are furnished with a queen size bed and 2 single beds head to head with mostly IKEA furnitures. The queen bed mattress was stiff, so be prepared to get some numbness when you wake up the next day. The blankets for the extra bed are children size, so teenager will find it too small.
Those who are sensitive to lights, please look around for other hotels/apartment. In the bed room, there is a red beam for emergency light and the lower level has a bright "Keluar" (Exit) signage that is on 24 hours.
The ventilation in the toilets sounded like a tractor roaming above you.
So either level, you are not going to get a good rest.
Be warn if you are staying with children or friends. The toilet door upstairs has a gap which you can see inside and the frosted panel was not fully laminated. So anyone can just see inside when you do your business. And there is no shower curtain so you will feel uneasy unless you lock the bedroom or nevermind if you are honeymooners.
A huge bottle of shampoo and soap were provided but we were quite reluctant to use.
And also, there was only 1 set of key and access card given chained together. So my husband had to lock us up in the apartment so that he can access the lift to draw the deposit money.
And we have to wait for the lady to come before we can check out and obtain our deposit before we can leave. It's not over. We have to place the key and access card back to the letter box. So we have to make a round back into the carpark, place back the key and then exit.
This place is definitely not for family. I gave 2 because of the new and clean of the apartment.
