We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon, after a week travelling in Malaysia with a fair amount of luggage (plus extras) to find we were on the third floor, not bad except the lift was out of order. As there was only one person on the desk we had to wait for five to ten minutes to get help with the baggage. In the event we carried two of the cases ourselves. This was no mean feat as the stairs were to say the least inconsistent, ranging from about two inches to up to 6-7 inches high. Once in the room things were fine, the room was small but reasonably comfortable, basic facilities were available, and most things worked. Although we asked for a double room with a large bed we ended up with two single beds, but that was fine, at least the beds were very comfortable. We only had an over-night stay so we were OK with the facilities, although the breakfast wasn't exactly five star it was acceptable (first time we have been given plastic plates and bowls to eat off). Overall the experience was OK, remembering it was a budget hotel, but had we been there for more than one night the opinion may well have been different.
Incidentally, the hotel is a 20-30 minute walk away from the Jonker Street night market, a bit further than we had expected, but the riverside walk was pleasant enough.
