4/5 Good

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

The location is excellent. It is close walking distance to night market, wet market where we get inexpensive seafood, mosque plus shopping malls and restaurants. It is good that the hotel has freezer to store our freshly bought seafood. Unfortunately it was not good. Our fresh seafood was not frozen and was nearly spoilt when we arrived home. However, the wet market freezer was excellent as our lobsters were still frozen solid when we unpacked at home.

    I like this hotel and I like the view. This is maybe my 5th time here. This hotel is in an older section of own and across form the night market, so outside the hotel it is busy and crowded, and older building are across the street. It may bother some. Every time I have been here I notice fresh look to the rooms, but they have only one USB outlet compared to the newer hotels that have more.

    Great sunset at rooftop, except for swimming pool

    Everything was good, in fact, they upgraded my room as i was celebrating our anniversary. Few areas of improvement, vacuuming the floor - as there were bits of chocolate colour bread bits dropped on the carpet, crowning the trees at the swimming pool view - more crows as spawning on these trees as they went to their bird nest, removing the hanging truss frame structure at the pool - the crows were waiting up there for the people to leave their food, snacks or drinks on their tables unattended so that they can eat. After eating, the crows start to poop and their droppings went to the beach chairs, swimming pool floors, and the pool itself. Yes, its disgusting though, but compared to other hotels, the poops were more, because of the hanging frame structure above the swimming pool which allows them to wait.
