              Upgrade and repair”

              It was very nice and cozy place to stay. However, certain repair work need to be carry out as the basin at the common area had been stuck which resulted in the water leaking which sooner or later would start to cost uneasy smell and cockroach and ants. For Room 204, there will be some water leaking from the roof if heavy rain and the water pressure for the Room 204 might need to be change with the pam installation would be good. Maybe the coffee powder could be change as i belief, due to long period of exposure to wind which resulted the whole coffee cannot to be consumed anymore. Other than that me and my family we are very happy to stay at this premise. Hope the owner could take note and carry out some of the repair work.

              The price is different from the website. I supposed to pay RM151.30 of 2 rooms for one night stay. But when i made the payment at the hotel, they charged me RM172 which was really upsetting! She told me the price here not include SST and i even took the calculator and counted myself the price should around RM160. Where the hell RM12 came from??? She said the boss gave price RM172. Bloody hell. I felt betrayed and disappointed when she couldnt explain the price difference where she actually can call the boss and asks the boss to explain him/herself. Another thing is that, the wall is plywood. You could actually hear the next room noise. I could even heard the music played at the lobby. Not a quiet place. Otherwise, was okay.
