GOOD PLACE TO STAY IF STAFF MORE ALERT.
stay was amazing overall, I sure lobby decoration mengingatkan sy stay di hotel di Europe, bilik pn ok not to big not too small, catnip dan bersih, Cuma staff kurang alert ttg keperluan guest, I ask to do room cleaning/makeup tapi tak buat, at lobby I bediri agar lama tapi receptionist tau tegur untuk tanya keperluan I , I faham die tengah entertain other guest but she can say something untuk bg tau I untuk tunggu sekejap. I cuma nak minta nak ambik beg shj. breakfast is average nothing special ,
