The hotel was ok but it was difficult to get assistance from the hotel staff . There were huge crowds of people and long winding queues at the check in/service counters. The food is mostly Chinese cuisines and I could hardly get something to eat due to lack of variety.

Was quite happy with our recent stay at their deluxe room lately for 3 nights. The rooms are clean and with the joining doors, I can sleep at ease during the nights while My son and Mum are in the other room. The rooms are not that small as feedback by friends but it can be better if they have...

Hotel is so big, got lots of rooms. Lobby is always crowded and seats are always occupied so not really a good place to hang out. Facilities are clean, staff are ok, not so accommodating but not snob. Rooms are small, you only get what you pay for. Well, rates are really cheap so cannot expect too much. Over-all, stay...

The hotel was very good. No AC, this place does not require one. Hot water available. Th beds were good. Try to get a room which has a mountain view. They charge some 10 RM extra for early check in. Check in & checkout was hassle free as they had automated machines. The hotel is also in the heart of...

I booked two connecting rooms with family. One with queen size bed and one with twin beds. The beds are very comfy, the bathroom is clean, the room is already cold with a fan. The check-in and check-out process with the kiosk are very easy with your IC or passport. The hotel floor has a ironing room and a water...
