When I checked on the web, it shows 5 star boutique with 1 star price. Well, I had booked a twin-deluxe and once arrived, they have very little parking space. Those who cannot find one, need to park an empty space opposite the hotel beside a restaurant. The hotel lobby has some boutique style decoration, comfortable and welcome. The reception was quick and prompt.
For the room, it was small. However, the decoration was not interesting. Just added with some artistic picture, chair and bathroom wall tile, it did not make it a boutique.
Most of the accessories are using non-branded product which I never heard before, especially the Osuki LCD TV. TV reception was not clear. The bed was rather soft but still alright. For room cleanliness, it was fine. Bathroom was not that clean but the water pressure was good.
It is located at Ujong Pasir, which about 2 -3km away from Mahkota Parade. For those who are driving, it is not far from tourist attraction like Jonker Street. For this trip, we went to Cheng Ho Cultural Muzeum, Cheng Hoong Teng Temple and tasted the famous satay celup. Quite interesting places and food.
For the breakfast, this hotel has provided a 2 star food. It has very limited choices and the taste was not up to mark. The orange juice was too diluted and overall, it was very disappointed.
The rate for twin-deluxe is RM198 with additional RM2 for heritage tax. So, for RM200 for 5 star boutique and 1 star price room, it is simply misleading statement.
However, if you don't expect too much for "5 star boutique", well it is still acceptable. just ignore the "1 star" price.
