Hotel is quite convenient, as lotus is next door and food is a plenty around. Room is small, but ok. But floor was dirty with clumps of hair here and there. Overall, is ok. Good hotel, not spectacular, but for short stays, is ok. Receptionists are ok and quite friendly. Recommended.

Cons: the room was ok but the bathroom got unpleasant smell like urine. And the shower part is clogging. Pros: got nice view-housing. Really close to the eateries-family mart/pizza hut/mcdonalds/kfc/lotus market/pelita nasi kandar, grab ride from Sungai Nibong terminal only RM5 (not peak time), weekend got pasar malam in front (chinese).
