Walking distance to Burger King, J&T and Costa Coffee with ample parking spaces. Recommended for those who wants cheaper accommodations with easy access to shops and parking spaces.

✅ Booked for 3nights but checked out the next day. ✅ The room condition is not like what have been pictured. ✅ Door lock not functioning. ✅ Dusty. ✅ Got 1 plug only. Even though the room is for 2 people. ✅ Probably not recommended for people who prefer more clean & big space. ✅ Not worth the money even though follow their normal room price.
