Don't walk down dark alleys 3. Don't open your room door to strangers 4. report suspicious people in the lobby 5. number to emergency services We only...

Booked this hotel on a last minute basis for Chinese new year celebration. Reason is because the location is convenient and anywhere in town is only a short drive away and of course the budget price being slapped on the hotel despite the peak season. God knows it turns out to be one of my lowest point in my journey....

location is good as nearby got KFC next to hotel, walking distant for breakfast and lunch for non halal food. Front counter is friendly. The shortcoming as follow:- a) no fridge in the room, despite name the room as "deluxe room'. look more like standard room. b) no room service to clean the room.

Visited a friend who was already staying there thus booked 2 nights stay which I only stay for a night. Very basic with no facilities whatsoever but yet the price is not exactly that cheap.

Poor location and bad for a budget! This place may look good on booking.com but don't be fooled like us. Rude staff and takes money from you with out permission costing us ever more money than it should have! What a let down after 8 months of travelling! Do yourself a favour and pick some where else!

A simple hotel with a very clean and nice room. Free parking. Very attentive and friendly front office staff. Located at city center. Very convenience. You can cross the road to GIANT Supermarket and food courts. There are KFC and Thai food stall beside the hotel. Walking distance to CHIMES Heritage, NAGORE Squares with lots of nice cafes.

This hotel looks so much better on the outside, I really thought it would be so smart and well kept but it's actually a bit of a dump. The room was reasonably clean, but the furniture obviously hadn't been checked as there were dirty tissues left in the drawers.....yuck! The single curtain over the window was hanging off and the...

“Higher floors are much more quiet. Like most hotels, it is the type of guest that gives other guest opinions if the hotel is good or bad. If there is a problem with certain guest, let the front desk know about it so that they can do something about it. This hotel has a good record in dealing with such problems.”
