Exceptional 10.0
Value and service & location make it my choice!
Heritage 1026 was recommended to me by a young local - he was "spot-on". A great value in a great location (quiet & comfortable with everything U need nearby and none of the tourist craziness). I will stay here again!

Very Good 8.0
Apparently the room allocated to me was vacant for few days. The housekeeping did not check whether the condition of the bedsheets. I checked in and found lizards faeces on it. Called housekeeping and was changed after waiting for more than 15 mind. The locality of the hotel is great and easily accessible to food.

Good 6.0
Worth the money
Worth for money , walking distance for food . Main entrance at the side road . Hotel should consider the car park facing main road is for staff parking , else is too empty . It looks so "dead" or abandoned from the main road .... tv image not that clear ....
Yew Fei, my1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Decent but pricey for what u get
Clean room and bathroom but tv has just local channels with not too good reception. Breakfast is limited. Rooms near the pool is rather noisy (guess to be expected)
