The stay is good. The staff is good. It is my second visit. But I had found people clothes for my second visit underneath the bed. I had feedback the staff on the reception and they quickly transfer the room to another room. Overall, my stay is good.

Pro: -Walking distance to JB CENTRAL. -Room is spacious (got free upgrade to Executive, tqsm). Cons: -Cleaner cleaned my room but did not lock the door properly. Hence it was left unlock until i came back and discover it during midnite. Lucky thing no missing item. Apprec hotel mgmt to look at this matter seriously. -Room's carpet near toilet is moldy (executive room-shld replace or do somethng abt it). -Pathway (carpet) fm our room to lift lobby quite dirty. Shld do regular clean up, shampoo,etc. -Toilet's sink stucked.
