Reception guy was nice enough but was then informed that they had double booked the Superior King En-Suite. Was told not to worry as he had booked me in at their sister hotel on...

It's just an average inn. Nothing much to shout about. Photos are different than the actually thing. The air cond temperature is unpredictable. It's next to a food court where they have karaoke session on Saturday hence it's loud and noisy till 3am. Just manage your expectation.

Glance through some reviews from tripadvisor before making the booking. There are something good but also something really bad that people have commented about it. People commented the toilet was not clean, the staff was...
