The room was satisfactory. However the fried mee hoon and noodles are disgusting as I saw them placed in plastic bags (non food grade) before being poured into the serving trays. Hygiene check please!

You can put/leave your luggages in their locker room. Early check-in could be done at 1.30pm & late check-out could be done at 1pm. The staffs are friendly. Pay 12RM tax at the front desk. Walk 3minutes to the Island Hospital. Hau Hau Yu Restaurant on the G floor of the hotel = good & not too pricey.

The availability of the room = the same like shown on app. You might not get the room if you extend without prior notification. Same breakfast daily, but quite tasty & just fine. Tax: 12RM/night/room pay at the front desk.

Exactly the same as it pictured. I also extend for another 2nights with the same type of room. Breakfast is OK, more than 2 options of drink & food. Staffs are great. Ps. you need to carry your own luggages to your room 😅 and no food stalls around.
