A coffee shop is right in front of the establishment. Furthermore, dining options offering authentic Malaysian mix of flavours are present within the neighbourhood.
Quality upgraded rooms
Those who have stayed at the upgraded rooms gave rave reviews about the comfort of their accommodations. Upgraded quarters have two air conditioning units, a huge round bed, and a private bathroom with a Jacuzzi. Many said that spending a little amount for the additional upgrade was totally worth it!
Issues with security concerns
There were many homeless people sleeping outside the building at night and loitering around every morning, which made the hotel guests quite uneasy. Others feared that their rooms could be opened without their permission, as there were times when the doors do not lock.
Air-Conditioning units are not working well
Guests reported that while the air conditioners in their rooms work, it barely does anything to make the temperature lower. Moreover, many were disappointed that there were no air conditioners on the walkway from the lifts to their rooms, and that the entire hotel is too warm.
Small & dark standard rooms
Many rooms have poor lighting, with no windows and black-painted interiors, so guests are almost unable to tell if it's day or night outside. Moreover, some rooms are so small that guests compared them to pigeon holes -tight and claustrophobic.
