Very Good

- Family vacation
Nice place to stay. Near street food
- Family vacation
Overall it's a good place. Very near to most famous food places. But front desk officer was not very friendly. Moreover there was no parking lot to park the cars, have to park it outside which is quite risky. During booking the app says there is parking place. The room is very small, suitable for budget travellers.
- Medical Travel
The space is small but acceptable. The cleanliness could be improved. The second night we are there, the floor is still full of hair, I suggest you must wear your sandals all the time. But for its location and price, I will choose this hotel again later.
Close to the town and the room is clean but a bit noisy in the morning
The location is very strategic. Food are around, not far from KOMTAR, friendly staff, clean room...
