The Explorer Hotel very near to Shopping malls , all walking distant about 5 min to 10 min . Very lively area n a lots of food around the hotel and also nearby McDonald opens 24 hrs. Hotel room is ok except the toilet is smelly although the toilet is clean. Something to do withthe smelly floor trapped. Hope hotel can improve n get rid of this stink smell.
