      Good experience stay in Dec 2021”

      Good value hotel and very friendly staffs. Just request anything from the staffs (shampoo, shower gels, extra towels) and they are very helpful to entertain. The room was not too big (superior room with single bed for solo traveller like me) and although not too fancy it was clean and comfortable. The location was excellent for me to travel to Deen Maju Kandar Restaurant by Grabcar (the fare was affordable from the hotel) and at the hotel lobby, you can wait for your Grab at the lounge provided. Very quiet from the noise of the cars at the road nearby. Love the vibes here! Highly recommended for those looking for budget hotel with good value regardless you're travelling alone or with family and friends. However, no mineral water is provided by the hotel at the time I stayed there. So please bring your own mineral water for your stay ya!

      The hotel is placed in the heart of Georgetown, so it's easy for you to reach out to some of the places to eat or visit. The room was acceptable, the only problem is the room didn't have any mirrors inside, so i had to get ready inside the toilet (i can only found the mirror inside the bathroom). eventhough the room size was quite small, but there are plenty of spaces for me to store my personal stuff without blocking my way around the room. they have their own parking spaces for the customers too, but it might be a trouble for the customers to get a parking space during peak seasons, as it is very limited. overall, i enjoyed my stay here even just for 2 days and 1 night.

      Nice Place to Rest After Long Hours Working”

      The hotel is very strategic location for my working area. The price is reasonable for business traveler like me. The furniture is looks old but still acceptable. Am happy with the staff attitude when i left my belongings after checkout. The cleaner is honest whereby she kept my belongings and return to me safely. However cleanliness is moderate.
