Very strategic location, really beside Tesco supermarket. There are many restaurants nearby, walkable distance to USM. Unfortunately, we couldn't get internet connection & only available 6 local TV channels. The hotel is new & clean, there's just enough space for praying.

Budget hotel, located neither near from downtown nor tourist places, exclusive of breakfast. For such reasons, the relatively pricy rate is not reasonable.
