Breakfast should be like a buffet style or at least give us choice to choose,not only 'we give you coupon and you put the meal Infront of us'. What if your guest is allergic to any of the item that you 'put' on the table,then it means we have to stick with either coffee or tea. Thank you for reading this comment.

This hotel provides wonderful service. There’s free airport pick-up, and when we switch to a hotel downtown later they even drove us there free of charge. And it also comes with free breakfast. Every room has a nice balcony. The hotel is a only a few minutes’ walk to the beach. And for all that it only cost us 130 RMB for a room with twin beds. We are very happy with everything!

Hidden Gem in Tanjung Aru”

I wasn't aware of this hotel existence until recently. Hidden from the sight of main road of Tanjung Aru. It is a great place to stop by for a night or if you are in transit to the airport. Tanjung Aru and Perdana Park are also within walking distance - you can get to either one in 10 minutes walk. The room is spacious, complete with balcony and basic amenities. It's an old hotel but don't let that hinder you. If you are the type that value your privacy and needed some alone time within the heart of Tanjung Aru, this is a place to go to.
