Positive Reviews

Rooms impress

Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Air conditioning is very effective. Guests reserve particular praise for the immaculate bathroom, the comfortable bed, and the general feeling of space within the room.

Affordably good food

The food is enjoyed by guests and is, they feel, well priced. They also note that the hotel is close to neighbouring restaurants and to some great food courts.

A convenient location

According to guests, the location is very convenient. The famous and popular Wet Market is opposite the hotel, and it is a walk of around ten minutes to sushi treats at Taiping Mall. Both the railway and bus stations are convenient, and less than three kilometres away.

Negative Reviews

Staff spoils the stay

Guests feel that, more often than not, staff can camouflage failures in a hotel and transform the visitor’s indifferent view into a positive one. Sadly, the reverse applies here and guests say that their visit is spoilt because of the very poor behaviour of some, but not all, front-desk personnel. These individuals, they suggest, are in need of a good dressing down from management.

A pointless TV

In their efforts to attract visitors from overseas, guests feel that the hotel management should turn their attention in the direction of the rooms’ TVs. There are no English channels, so many guests feel that, currently, the TV is a waste of space. Even just one English-speaking channel would, they suggest, add to the hotel’s appeal.

The cost of free parking

The parking system is quite complicated. Guests say the earlier morning period is, as advertised, free. Thereafter, visitors must purchase coupons from one of the many nearby shops to cover the parking costs. So, all-day parking is, in fact, not free.
