Very Nice and Helpful Staff and Hearth Warming Hotel”
This journey with my parents for medical review. During our arrival and check in at counter, the staff noticed my father is unable to walk for long distance, so they suggested to offer a wheelchair for my father. This hotel staff very health warming. A highly recommended hotel. Meanwhile, the hotel location also nearby the open market and walking distance to shopping mall.

Simple hotel”
A hotel just for sleeping. Do not expect much. room a bit small without wardrobe. Those who need ironing has to do it outside of the room in another ironing place. However, it is value for money and location is good. Nearby a lot of eateries, convenient shops, as well as seafood restaurants. For those who need a good massage, centres are abundant within walking distance.

Convenient & Cozy”
The room has sufficient things for a comfortable stay. They provide free parking and it is within walking distance to (10-15 mins) to good restaurants, convenience stalls, local attractions and malls. They do not have a kettle jug in the room but they do have a water dispenser in each floor (near the lift). There are 2 packets of 3in1 coffee provided in the room. They tasted good. Unfortunately, the hotel staffs do not allow you to request for extra even though we stayed there for more than 1 night. The hotel staff mentioned that the coffee packets serve as a one-time welcome drink.

Comfortable stay in the city”
The room was smaller than the cititel express I stayed in Ipoh. It was just a short stay, and it was comfortable enough. In the middle of the city, walkable distance to nearby attractions (filipino market). Parking ample. Don't forget to try Borenos fried chicken, a local fast food chain restaurant in front of the hotel

Well located and comfortable”
We had a very nice stay at Cititel. It is only a few minutes walk to the waterfront, there are several stores and restaurants next to and in the hotel as well. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. I do suggest using Grab to call cars though because the local taxis usually overcharge visitors quite a lot.
