Very pretty rooms and good service! Clean and I like it how the room floors are wood/high resistant flooring, prefer it to carpet. Beds are so comfy too.
I couldn’t find a room service menu in the room. Maybe there isn’t room service. But I’m not complaining.
Excellent location, close to amenities , Has all the modern facilities while retaining some of the old world charm
Hotel service was great & breakfast choice is also good.
Excellent position for exploring. Close to shopping centres, Hawkers market & cinemas.
The hotel is at a good location. The feel and look is premium.
good song at the bar
Environmental friendly. No water bottle given.water dispenser near lift
All good 👍
