Guest reviews

  • Couple
    9.2

    Overall is good.

    1. totally different from what I had requested; e.g. a. I requested 2 single beds but end up with 1 double bed, b. i requested not to stay at corner room but end up with the corner room. 2. no mineral water in the room

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The suites were very reasonable rate and spacious. The beds were comfortable.

    Our room was not ready until 1.5hrs after checkin. Some of the staff were very helpful including two indian/malaysian guys at the reception and the manager. But the main persons at the reception counter were not very helpful in helping us get the rooms or explaining why the rooms were not ready. They only told us to sit and wait but the lobby was already full of people. We did not get the baby crib we requested.the extra bed took 3 hours to arrive. The bathroom showers did not work well and sprayed everywhere. One area near the toilet was very dirty.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    My room was upgraded at no extra costs as the room reserved was still not ready when I checked in. Despite heavy check-ins due to few group check ins, the staff maintained their hospitality and welcome drinks were personally served to waiting guests at the lobby.

    The coffee house is rather too small and could not cater for the breakfast buffet. Due to the long queue I decided to have my breakfast elsewhere. The hotel should have provided separate venues for groups' breakfast/meals. Towels were not provided for guests at the swimming pool. Previously they would, to be collected/returned at the gym area.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Cozy, spent really good timefriendly staff, good hotel

    Safe was locked when I checked in, had to call a staff to get it reset, toilet has no water hose.

  • Single
    9.6

    Location - easy access to shops, eateries, shopping complex and other offices if one is on a business trip.

  • Single
    8.2

    Nice and friendly staff. Hotel near shopping mall. clean and comfortable bed and linen. Hot and cold shower

    Free internet but not accessible inside the room. Old and worn-out carpet, stained bathroom.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Location is good, attending a seminar at PSDC. Variety of food around the hotel.

    Booked and confirmed a 2+1 suite but was given 2 bedroom suite. Have to pay for additional bed which we rejected. Room was made at alternate day only.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    nice ambience, near to airport

    need improvement in their breakfast as it does not offer a lot of variety , but the taste still acceptable

  • Family with children
    7.8

    clean, soft pillows, large room, and nice toilet

    no lift in basement, very limited breakfast, and the hotel restaurant close early at night

  • Couple
    7.8

    i like the environment in the hotel room that i booked.

    the hotel have wifi but i cannot access broadband internet. it makes me difficult to check any emails.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We liked: the international atmosphere, the exceptionally high level of friendliness and courtesy of all the staff, especially the bellboys, the restaurant waiters and head waiters / restaurant managers), the high quality and comfort of our room, the well-maintained interior decoration in all the rooms, the wide range of delicious breakfast dishes, the fitness suite & pool, the classical background music, the efficient laundry service.

    We had a few problems with the internet connection in our room: the fixed connection in our room wasn't working and we had to switch wireless networks 3 times. We would also suggest that the reception desk staff continue to receive training to upgrade their command of English; some of them had difficulty in understanding some simple requests (which helped us to improve our Malay!). Often not enough towels in the fitness suite and often no towels by the pool.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Comfy room and staff is helpful

    slow room service, expensive transportation from hotel to elsewhere, breakfast needs improvement, and room strongly smells of insect spray.

  • Single
    8.2

    Its like stay in 5 star hotel.. In room complete juz except iron must call the operator to borrow it.. Need free newspaper every morning to read. Everything else good

  • Couple
    4.6

    poor toiletry supply, such as no toothpaste/toothbrush, very inconvenience for stay.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Near from airport, easy to move..
