“Not That Bad After All !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

Read through the reviews but still went ahead to book a Family room through Asia Travel.com for RM250 per night (Incl 3 breakfast, in fact 4 as the staff were kind enough not to charge my younger 11yrs old kid). Main reason for booking this badly reviewed property was that my bus arriving at the terminal would be within walking distance to the place. You can see this bright yellow building just next to MS Hotel when the buses / cars turns into the town from the expressways.

I was a wee bit apprehensive upon arrival. Yes, this is an old old property which deserves a thorough uplifting. But for around SIN$100, having a Family Room (triple bed) at a central location, how much more can I expect. The room at 11 floor which I had was clearly a refurbished room. The toilets were clean & functioning well. LCD TV, safety box, extra pillows...well you get all that's expected from most hotels. Yes, true that they do not provide the usual 2 bottles of drinking water.

The Chinese restaurant within the property seems to be quite popular. It was quite crowded on my first night. And it was fully booked for an marriage occasion on my 2nd night. Hence, no opportunity to try it out.

Breakfast was okay, nothing to shout about. The proximity to the Berjaya Mega Mall is a plus plus plus. The Malay chicken rice stall round the corner deserves at least a mention here.

All in all, I did not regret very much checking into this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay a wee bit more for the rooms in the "executive floor".

Pros:
1) Strategically located in city centre.

2) Walking distance to - a shopping mall (Berjaya), a private hospital, 'makan places' (eateries) - mamak & night market (Saturday night).

3) Room was ok, cleanliness and everything was in order.

Cons:
1) If you choose to park your car at the covered parking area, be careful when you're going up and coming down as it is a bit stiff.

2) Buffet breakfast - ok, and nothing extra. If you are lucky, you might be able to see the supervisor having breakfast next to you, hahaha...

3) No complimentary in-room wifi & newspaper.

4) For 1st timer, you might have a difficulty in finding the hotel's lobby from the covered parking area.

This hotel is quite old.

if you had no choice and you have to check in this hotel, please, do not take room 815.

the air conditioner is so loud its like sleeping inside a helicopter cabin.

the bed spread is old and looks like a spent rag....the sheets are not so white too.

the shower attachment needs some serious repair.

If you can...spend a little more and stay somewhere else....i was surprised to see there were other hotels nearby....its good i was here only for a very short stay.

If you do not have too high an expectation this place is quite ok. Rooms and decor are typical and standard. The location is excellent as it is in the centre of town and within walking distance to many places of interest.
I was given free wifi for all the days of my stay there.
