    Location. Easy access to causeway and ample parking.

    Took sometime to get the rooms as they had to check on my booking. Waited at the reception for a good 20mins and initially told I was on level 13 but than upon receiving the key my room was on level 24. No explanation as to the long delay. Seems like they were trying to find a room or had to sort out matters. Room given on 24th level and tends to be a little noisy as they have the Sky Lounge on the 26th level which have music going on until 1 to 2.00am.

    I like the steam bath most. We had a free upgrade from Junior Suite to Apartment room and the room is huge. We love the cosiness of the room but it could be better if there is a door to separate the bedroom from the living room & kitchenette. There is no privacy if you were to bring your kids or friends along.

    It has spacious room and good view of jb and Singapore.

    Stream room is not working. Gym is spacious but not enough gym equipment.

    Toilet basin was choke. Toilet glass panel not clean. Water was leaking somewhere & causing the floor to be wet.

    First, read my about my bad experience (VERY LOUD MUSIC..NOISE FROM THE 14th FLOOR MUSIC LOUNGE FROM 11pm TO 2 am. These complains are a regular and NORMAL issue to the hotel, that's why the night duty manager was well trained to handle this. Apologetic, etc. When I ask for a pot of Milo at 2 am, he brought up the Milo and cakes himself. However my sleep pattern was already disrupted. Only was able to sleep at 4 am. Next day on checkout, the morning manager, under my pressure, the day duty manager gave me a discount. Pity about the noise, as the rooms were very spacious and the beds were very comfortable.

    There is a MUSIC/KARAOKE lounge on the 14th floor. The noise can be heard on the 13th floor and 15th floor. DO NOT ACCEPT ANY ROOMS ON THESE TWO FLOORS. The noise starts from 11 pm and on weekdays ends only at 2 am. On weekends, the noise continues to 3 am

    The hotel is near to many amenities E.G. Shopping; eating (within 10mins) and a shirt taxi trip can bring you easily to the city centre. In ksl shopping mall, the's a shuttle bus (rm 1.60) that brings you to all the main shopping malls in jb.

    We were given a room on the 13 flr. The room smelt of cigarette smoke when we enter ( despite us requesting for a non- smoking rm). However, the housekeeping did a good job in masking the smell. In fact, the whole hotel have that tinge of cigarette smoke smell. We can hear loud noises from the talking along our corridor waking us up at 530-6am.

    Regrettably, nothing at all.

    (1) Room was noisy throughout with external pump nose running and bothering me whole day. (2) A/C was pre-programed and cannot be adjusted below 23 degrees Centigrade. (3) Final bill on room alone was RM266 - more than Booked.net's quotation od RM200. Staff could not explain the difference.
