Booked via booking.com which states that wifi is available at all locations within hotel. Unfortunately, wifi is only at lobby. Room was pretty shabby, no fridge no safe in room. Credit card machine unavailble and had to draw from nearby ATM before we are issued with the key. But front desk personnel are very friendly.

Check in process took almost 50 min with 2 couples in-front of me. Room is spacious but everything else in the room is badly maintain. Poor wifi signal as they claim it is only work in the lobby (provided there wasn't too many customers logging in)

Although the hotel will give provide user name and password but most of the time it won't work from rooms and even from lobby.When I complained about the matter they accepted that...

Went for 2 days 1 night trip to JB. Actually we tried to avoid this hotel at the first place. However, we didn't have a choice. Basement Carpark & Surau - Scary entrance and quiet dark at night. Very smelly because their garbage waste area is in the car park. Smell like somebody pee. Lobby - Very not organised. Reservation...

Reasonably priced with pleasant helpful staff. The room was just OK. Broken towel rack, leaking bidi, hairs on the bathroom floor. The room was tired but ok for a nights sleep. I didn't like the location, you can't really wander round and grasp the place, especially at night. There are other hotels in the area and a Lot of condo...
