Last stayed in December 2021
Type of room stayed in: Small Double Room (actually it is quite sizeable despite its name)
Value – 4.5/5
Cleanliness – 4.5/5
Ambiance – 4/5
Staff services – 4/5
Location – It is near Tengkat Tong Shin area which used to be a bustling area. If you are a foodie, within walking distance from the hotel still got some nice cafes. I tried Feeka and Rabbit Hole and I like both the places.
Lobby – Cozy little lobby with nice mural. Due to physical distancing, during peak hour (check in / check out time), it can be slightly cramped.
Below is the walkway to the room. I did had trouble finding my room initially cos the room number was actually made from the small tiles on the floor but I kept looking at the door (eye level). Silly me.
Check in / Check out process – Not much of a hassle. They do take RM100 refundable security deposit.
Staff – Generally friendly.
The room – The room is definitely beyond my expectation. The first thing that actually caught my attention was the door design which simulate the olden day shophouses grilled door.
I find the room to be spacious and the layout is very functional; the multi racks on the right hand side with a single sofa settee with a working table on the left and immediately after, that is the bed. In between, it has space that is big enough for you to do some stretches and exercises too if you wish. The bed area is carpeted meanwhile the rest of the floor is timbre strip; these kinda give a clear demarcation of the two areas.
The toilet is a bit small but what I like most was the rain shower. LOL. The water pressure is great!
The room is decorated with numerous old photos which I assume was the olden days of Batu Road. Plus, the hidden downlight on the wall and uplight on the bed head give the room a very inviting ambiance.
The room is very comfortable clean and well maintained. It comes with amenities ala any 3 to 4 stars hotel.
Hotel parking – They only have valet parking and limited space. They do charge RM20 per day per car. Slightly steep I feel (no free parking). There are open air carpark nearby as well which is within walking distance.
