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 hotel need to upgrade basic facilities especially toilet and bathroom. The water flush is not working properly neither the van dilation system in the bathroom. However this hotel provide the most convenient car park for those who driving. Location is quite strategic. Easy to find food.

The room given to me was dirty, especially the carpet. Toilet not functioning well. The furniture in the room was too old. The ceiling at the toilet room collapsed in the middle of the night. Was shifted to another room for safety reasons. The room offered much better than the last one.
