Clean, Quiet and Minimalist”

The room is clean, the bed is big(but with a small patch of stain at the far end, which I only notice before check out) and consider clean, clean toilet, with 2 shower mode, rainfall and normal shower, they provide toothbrush as well! The surroundings is quiet but you feel secure as they post out security guards in front their hotel during night time.

Good location, clean rooms”

Everything here is decent. For the price you are paying, i think it is good. Had my wedding held at Pekin Cermerlang which was few mins drive away. Ikea was about 5-7mins grab ride away depending on traffic. Lamuse cafe and Paris Cafe was also less than 10 mins away. Overall location is great! Think the service at the reception could be more efficient...and maybe have at least one person who can speak english/chinese. I was lucky to have an in-law who was a malaysian and had to translate the entire time i was there...which was quite a headache and frustrating for us and the staff. Other than the language barrier, their service was great so thumbs up ;) Room was clean too!

Value for money for transit purpose”

For customer who intend to stay here for a night for road trip travels, this hotel is suitable enough. Though out of town and may seems out of place, it is sufficient enough if people is intending just for a rest before heading further elsewhere. The bed is comfortable (maybe perhaps because it is a new hotel) and room is spacing enough for 2 pax. One cons though is that the room has no window, but even if there is, there isn't any view to look out for unless you are intending for fresh air.

Bad service, but clean and cozy room.”

The receptionists had really bad service. No basic greetings nor smile from them. Hotel was clean and quiet. Not many people staying in here. Room was nice and clean, well lit. Downside was, it had really thin walls. Can hear people walking along the corridor even though it was carpeted. My room's toilet flush was faulty. It was working after i called for the recep, but after a few more uses, it failed to work. Location was alright, had a few eateries nearby within 500m. Good for a short stay.
