Room was ok, front desk ok, iron upon req, but request at any time they will provide. I just dont like the welcome drink. Overall ok. Near to street art, transfer road, penang road. Walking distance 15-20 mins. Easy to get grab and very fast. Limited parking, but i dont use parking.

It is not a value for money. The hotel management needs to work on improving their amenities in order to stay competitive. They also need to work on the quality and variety of the food served in the cafe as well as the ambience.

All was perfect expect for the very limited parking(only 6/7 bays behind car park). Suggestion is to get the transport company based in lobby to park somewhere else. But the rest are excellent with this hotel....room,customer service,location,swimming pool(can be better),breakfast

Checkin time in the online booking was at 2pm, we reached there at 2;30pm, and the staff were all not too friendly and insist that it is at 3pm.
