Go Elsewhere!
BED BUGS! Plus very rude management = do yourself a favour and stay away.

mixed feelings
Pros - Excellent customer service - Good location - Good size of room (805) - Free toiletries - Complimentary of water - Complimentary of daily newspaper Cons - Pathetic varieties of breakfast with stone hard white bread - Facing Penang Road, enjoy the ongoing traffic noises and yes, clear hearing of people laughing or shouting on streets - Daily visitors of roaches and flies - Door handle cannot be pressed down for more than 5 secs, else alarm will rang - Saw the ugly side of housekeeping I loved the friendliness of receptionists but others failed miserably. I know towels, face towels and perhaps floor mats are wash together but don't do it in front of me and don't stack all together. The housekeeper stacked all towels and floor mat together and hello, I'm not OCD but one of the towel is for my baby's use. Carpet is extremely dirty, seems like didn't vacuum for a very long time and beware of roaches! Breakfast is rather bad that I only had it on the 1st morning out of 4. Short and sweet, choose other hotel instead though location is great, with the bus stop just a 30 seconds away. PS: I dropped a plush at the lobby's sofa and no one attempt to inform or call me (holding a local line). Discover it missing only when I reach airport. Hmm.. Would appreciate if someone can notify me since I'm travelling alone with baby, not very easy to handle a baby with a luggage, diaper bag and a sling bag. Felt more sad for my bub though as its her favourite soft toy.
