Although the bedroom itself was fine & the location very central, the bathroom was terrible. It smelt like an Asian sewer, perhaps because the toilet pipe constantly dripped Tlhe door to the bathroom did not shut properly so you could smell it all the time. The toilet seat had dirty footprints on it, an unscrubbed bowl & a small deposit... More

Stayed here for a night in September. Comfortable stay. The room and the bathroom looked and felt old but clean and nice. However it's a bit cramped, not so spacious. Good location. Cheap price and I think it's ok. Didn't have a big issue with this hotel.

I used to stay in the hotel during weekend. Don't expect too much because this is a budget hotel located in the city centre, you can get as low as RM60 or USD20 for a room per night. You can go almost anywhere from here, shopping & dining are nearby, there's also a restaurant inside the hotel that open up... More

The reviews for this hotel were very good when I booked it. My friend and I had separate rooms. There were ants in her room so asked for the room to be fumigated, when she got back there was a huge cockroach (dead) in the room. We decided to spend the night in my room.
