    -I honestly have no complains about this hotel. -I took two rooms, one with window, and another without window. -Room was spacious, surprisingly the window-less room was more spacious than the window room. -The room was clean, bed and pillow was comfortable. -Good design of room, ample space to keep luggage, safe box provided in room. -There is a fridge in the room for convenience. -Shower has excellent water pressure and the temperature is also very stable, nice steady flow of hot water. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    The hotel is located at the Riverside. Rooms are clean with city view. Front counter staff and the doorman are very helpful and they will always greet you with smiling faces. Breakfast spread consider good for a 3 stars hotel. It is within walking distance to hotspot and some other eateries places. Nothing much at the 7/11 store but the coffee at Gloria is good.

    Great value for money in central location”

    My family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe twin room. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Although we didn't have a view of the river, it was great that the hotel was located right on the riverbank so that we could go for a walk easily. Would have been good to have a swimming pool available to cool off from the heat. Complimentary buffet breakfast had a small variety of options, but this didn't bother us because we were happy to go out and enjoy the wonderful local cuisine (Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee) close by. It was very unfortunate to see that most of the shopping centres close by are empty now. My elderly parents stayed in another double room on the same level as us and I was grateful that the shower wasn't a shower in a bath type. So it was easy and safe for them.

    The location along the river was great as it was easy to access all the sites we wanted. There is a nice walkway along the river with restaurants at night. Breakfast had a variety of selections and always plentiful. Staff were great and very helpful in arranging transport to our next location in Damai. Would stay there again.

    SUPERB”

    Worth!! Super duper satisfied to be honest. Just that the area of hotel did not provide large parking for visitor so we have to park out of hoteal areas which is a bit unconvenient. Others and rooms is excellent!!
