    bad, rundown and smelly hotel.

    The hotel has a good ranking on most hotel booking sites but dont tanke that as insurance for it beeing nice. The hotel is run down with disgusting floor carpets in the rooms which look like they havent been cleaned for the last decade. Also, there is a funny smell thru out the rooms and hotel as if someone were smoking inside the ac-system. At the price they quote, you can get a way, way better hotel in PP. Dont book this.

    the main entrance is a staircase. I've booked the hotel to ensure we have good access for my mom with knee issue, turns out there is a huge staircase to climb every time we enter / leave the hotel. We later then discovered there is a very small lift at the carpark, the entrance to carpark was extremely steep for wheelchair too, moreover the staff never assisted us, or inform us about the availability of the lift.

    4/5 Good

    Comfortable stay and convenient location

    Booked this hotel at last minute because the original hotel booked was closed when I arrived. Location was quite ok except not many food options close by. Good to have a supermarket nearby though. Can easily use grab tuk tuk to attractions (central market, Russian Market, Royal Palace, Riverside, aeon mall, etc). Had dinner twice on the 13th floor, and the food was quite good. Reasonable prices too. Breakfast was decent, with some hot dishes, porridge, noodles soup and made to order eggs. Other than wifi unstable at times and missing some towels after each day housekeeping, overall stay was good.

    Good here is excellent. The Moon Pizza on the rooftop is outstanding and should not be missed. A range of meals not just pizza.
