Upon checking in, I was taken in by the simplicity and the sparse amenities the room has, perfect for over-the-weekend staycation. If you intend to check in, drop your luggage and do not intend to stay in the room very much, and only need it for sleeping then I think this arrangement would meet your need to a T. However, if you need to chill in the room, read and just while your time away, then I suggest you should book either Family Room or other larger rooms with window. Superior Twin Room is just a square without any window. The room was awfully tiny and it feels like a holding cell.
It doesn’t have a safe too, so you need to lug most of your valuables with you. And, you should already know by now that Malaysia is not necessarily the safest place on earth.
Location is not too bad, however, if you are walking back to the hotel late at night, it can be a little creepy, it’s rather dark and quiet. Other than that, it’s quite a good respite from the buzz. It has got convenience store a few doors away, a lot of coffee shops and restaurant. So, you will never go hungry. The coffees shops usually open into the night…so if you need a bite in the ungodly hours, be sure, you will never go hungry.
Also, the hotel provides bottled waters every day, and there’s a dispenser on the ground floor where you can get hot waters and the like. Like I said, this is purely for nomads.
I wouldn’t say I love this hotel very much, neither do I hate it a lot. It’s just a different concept from the hotels/hostels that I am used to. My only grouse though is the thin wall between the room and corridor. So if anyone trampled outside, it echoes through the room. If you are a light sleeper, bring a pair of ear plugs. Otherwise, be ready to be awaken every few mins/hours some walks outside your room or up and down the stairs. Or worst, talk outside your room!
