Good 7.0 From 135 reviews

Fair 4.0
The hotel needs lots of PM periodic maintenance. Carpet in hallway faded and torn, toilet was full of mold and smelled foul. Water from room upstairs can be heard flowing through the drains. Windows while offering panoramic view of the harbor are not wiped clean. Furniture and headboard are light colored fabric and full of stains. One day even found a cockroach in the room. Front office staff while trying to be helpful were not knowledgeable. Hotel has a great location but needs lots of TLC.

Good location
Good location with large shopping mall opposite and fisherman's wharf nearby. Great view of water village from room. Bathroom bit small with no storage and noisy sometimes. Planes flying past and workmen outside. Sounded like window was open but it wasn't. Asked staff to print airline tickets and emailed them to front desk four times but staff could never find them. Make sure you eat all your breakfast or you will be charged 50 ringgit for leftovers!
