The hotel has a very convenient location, sited right next to City Square Mall. Can't complain on that. Check in was really prompt at 9pm. Small functional lift that fits 2 or 3 depending on which lift you take. Corridor looks very basic with cheap looking carpet (at least it is carpeted?). Into the room……. Door cannot close on its own, require manual closure despite it having the door closing mechanism. Firm mattress (can feel the springs when lying on it) with 4 polyester (?) pillows provided on the queen bed. Room comes with a 2 seater sofa, a table tucked at the corner and a cupboard (which I did not use). There is a high pitch swirling sound produced by the air conditioner throughout the night (white noise?). The toilet is sufficient with basic toiletries provided. The towels smell funky (like those that did not dry properly during wet season), of which one of the towels was torn, though still functional. Water from the shower alternates between too hot and non-heated, really impossible to adjust to my suitable temperature. Overall a rather decent night stay for the price I paid for. May consider nearby hotels of the price is right. A 2.5/5 stars stay. Awesome price point with great location.

Very clean hotel, extremely quiet and situated very conveniently in the middle of town. Just 2 minutes walk to City Square Mall and 1 minutes walk to Maybank City Square. Lots of food outlets along Jalan Meldrum. Just make sure you have your Ringgit handy as there aren't many money changers around (2 April 2022).
