If you a westerner, don’t stay here

Not worth staying there at all. We opt to include breakfast which was literally two slices of toast with nothing else

Stayed 1 night in May 2019


Nothing. Unhelpful staff. Dirty bedshits covered with dry white fluids. No wifi. No breakfast on time. Rude staff

Close to Penang Road - easy excess to food outlets & stalls

Sharing toilet, carpark fees.

Sharing toilet was an issue, cause it's feel like not hygienic at all. Man and woman share the same toilets. The other issue is separated toilet and shower, if we are going to bath, need to go to toilet first then need to go to other room for shower, as a girl, it is hard to cover up our whole body to go to other shower room after we done our things in toilet. It's like so unfomfortable. And for the carpark, the person in charge keep ask me to come back to the hotel after 12 if i going to dinner, although he already charge me rm10 per day for parking. The reason he do that so that he can rent the car park to other car as the hotel nearest the food court for the Chinese. I feel like so disturbed as he keep asking me to come back late cause we as guest, we have our own time management.
