    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    New hotel located at a srategic location; external and interior is warm and comfortable unlike other budget hotel; Note sound proof is bad, not advisable for light sleeper or family with children (can easily hear neighbour hair dryer sound, corridor people's footstep and room was located Infront of store room, housekeeper has been talking loudly and banging the door early morning itself); Only one pillow is given and centralised aircond which you can't control temperature in Ur own room, it was freezing cold at night and morning. However Overall experience is good.

    It’s nice hotel if you like to hear all the sounds in the floor you stay. You can enjoy the sounds of chat, snore and any of noise. If next door, even the breath.

    Hotel lost booking...

    Hotel is basic and clean which was as expected. Issue I had was they could not find my booking and just asked me to pay for a room despite me having the booking confirmation with me. After 20mins searching, they finally found the booking under an incorrect name which they agreed was their mistake. No real apology offered which made the whole experience very disappointing.
