Nice but bad on the inside
The place is very ideally located but parking wise is very difficult where it only a by 11pm onwards and the aircond is low airflow that it forms ice after few hours operating thus we shut down the unit as that we have to clean up before we rest for the night. Whereby the toilet also flooded during a bath as the floor trap is stuck with dirt or the underground pipes is too small as water can't flow out fast enough. If all goes well then I will give you a 5star but this can be achieved by cleaning it properly and also maintain it probably.

Awesome Value of your money
Loved the location of the hotel. Right in Chinatown, and close to everything. Shopping mall was a stone throw away.

The room was very clean and I was a little early and they checked me in no problem. The a/c was a welcome relief and the wifi was always strong. There is a little patio in the back to sit at and water in the lobby. The bed was comfy and the bathrooms were always clean. The staff were always friendly and wouldn't hesitate to have a quick conversation with you. Speaking English was no problem at all. Great place with good people. Close to the KOMTAR, the mall and Lebuh Chulia, which has tons or restaurants and little bars. A little mini-mart across the street is also quite economical.
