Booked this hotel as it is nearer for my friends to pick me up. It's outside of the city centre, closer to the airport. Cost me RM7 from airport to hotel via Grab. Was pleasantly surprised with what is essentially a shop lot conversion.. Rooms are spacious, clean with coffee-making amenities as well as basic toiletries. Shops and restaurants are right on your doorstep as well. They do collect RM50 as a deposit but this is common in Malaysia. Also, non-Malaysian visitors please take note there's a new tourism tax in place which is over and above the room rate advertised. Reception staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
