Time for a revamp.
Only good thing is strong wifi. Hotel is really old. When check in there was no bathing towels. Same thing happen on 3rd day. Staff not very friendly. Hotel not near to any places of interest, such as malls. Have to take transport to places of interest.

The cleaning person did not clean cups not give us enough soup and shampoo. We do not like to complain. The keys are over sensutive, we need to redo it after we went outside. The front counter person it was due to our mobile phone got too close to it. One of the bed as in bad shape and caused me backache. The location is ok, easy access to nearby mLland famous eating places.

An enjoyable stay. The reception staff are very helpful and I feel I must also make a positive mention of the housekeeping. the breakfast had a good spread and the hotel is handy for lots of eating places. The hotel evening buffet is very good value.

short overnight stay.
Lagila lounge was advertised with special drink promotion and we were looking forward to have a drnk and relax. At 1130pm it was apparently closed and there were no staff there. Place was dark and empty. No wonder the hotel cannot generate revenue! When it was the Sheraton, it was lively and it had atmosphere and vibrancy. The room was very comfortable and clean. Hotel is very calm and quiet.
