Very Good

- Family vacation
The hotel should barred for the parking fee... and not really good location.
- Business travel
Room I stayed, 206, the water heater not functioning well. The rest, okay. Worth it for lowest price.
Comfy, spacious. No fridge, no couch.
I stayed at this hotel last year about 2-3 times. And this hotel is one of my favourite as it is next to Imago. But this time i felt like the room is downgraded and no more comfy sofa which i love to relax on. But overall ok la.
- Shopping & Culinary
Room floor is dusty. The water temperature cannot be controlled. I end up taking bath in very hot water. Receptionist should be more helpful especially to those who stay for the first time. Worst of all I need to pay for the parking even I am the hotel guest. It cost me rm17 for parking about 20 hours duration.
Perfect room and comfortable..
- Business travel
The hotel is just next to the Imago shopping mall. Its strategic location is most convenient to any traveller alike.
the room is spacious and well decorated.. unfortunately the aircond was on and off it seems like the timer was already been set.. i tried to turn off the timer button but its not functioning.. next the water pressure is unpredictable.. it can be flow strongly suddenly.. and the water temp suddenly can be so hot.. and wen i turned it to the opposite way it will be very cold by sudden..
- Backpacking
Nice place for short stay. Near Imago shopping mall in walking distance. The staff quite busy so it's hard for me to ask any information. She work alone at the counter. No free parking. So I was little bit disappointed. If you want cheaper parking lot, park your car at Imago Basement RM3 only.
- Business travel
Spacious, clean and comfy room. quite large bathroom, next to a mall easy to find place to eat. recommended!
