The staff from reception, doorbell are polite and courteous. 2) The hotel rooms are quite spacious but the door needs to do maintenance as it cannot lock properly unless you use the door latch. 3) Had requested in my booking for a room to be decorated (I had booked 3...

What i like about his hotel is that the staffs are very friendly and check-in at that point of time was very smooth and fast. My family (about 8 adults and 1 infant), booked 3 rooms. The room was big enough for us. However, my room condition was kinda of old and there's even stain on the toilet seat. Facilities...

Pros: • Reasonable price for the standard (not really a 4 star hotel) • Good location, easy access to Singapore or even Legoland, Malaysia • Clean...

Previously Hyatt which I stayed long ago, returned to this hotel now managed by Thistle. Generally as a business hotel is average but fair for the price charged. Meeting rooms were average with clearly worn doors and locks, meeting room toilets that look like due for refurbishment which goes the same for the hotel room though is clean and sufficiently...

This hotel is old and dated but was recently renovated. The service was good, concierge was of great help and check in was fast. The room was cozy with nice color scheme and high ceiling. My room has a sea view and the view is superb. The minibar was free and there is a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf maker...
