Clean, good service, great location. Not so far from Island hospital and many restaurants/street food surroundings.
Air-con was not function, ask for change room, they said is fully booked, only give me a stand fan for 4 of us. Breakfast was nothing can eat, and 8:30am finish the food, non refill.

Good location
Its well situated. Easy access to all kinds of food. Street food as well as restaurants.local n international cuisine. Shopping complexes within walking distance. There are also a few touristy things to do within walking distance. Unfortunately the lack of parking bays for customers can put off repeat business. We didn't want to move our car once a parking bay was secured for fear of not being able to find another upon return. Staff friendly and fairly competent.

Good Place to stay traveler with family or single.
Strategic place to stay as close to eating place and in middle of ity should be easy to visit several place in a day as this convenient might need by traveler as with family or couple but the cleanest of room should become to review and smell of the room should be fresh upon check in to the room.

Will recommend friends and business associates to stay here
generally good, highly recommended for short business trips and family trip. Good location to stay for food lovers and shoppers - accessibility to public transport and shopping is within walking distance
