I had the most pleasant stay here. The hotel is nice even its kind of old classic hotel. I suggest the hotel needs renovation. But the staffs are very nice and very helpful. My family always choose this hotel because they have service apartmen room and also the location is great. I highly recommend this hotel because its very suitable for big family to stay and worth the price.

The ceiling has been decay and needs new repainting or maintenance. I observe the toilet water pump not functioning well which cause the water always flow without stop. This mean wasted of water and failed to practise"Amalan Hijau"concept of environment.
