With greart location, nearly by is two shopping mall; bars and outdoor markets, easy to find food during night-time as well. Besides, it is close to some famous seafood restaurants. From airport, it takes less then 15mins for taxi and the taxi fare only RM30. Room is large but not clean enough, found a lot of ants in the shower...
