I stayed here during the long public holiday, 15 - 17th Sept so that we can organize daily trips to Singapore.
Location : Central enough. It is located at the old shop complexes just in front of the main road heading to JB Central. Pasar Karat is just 15mins walk away. Convenient store is just 3 doors away and Kastam JB is just 10 mins walk away. Perfect stay.
Reception : Smooth check in. Simple instruction and I hope you can lower down your deposit holding money. I do think holding 100 ringgit is too much. There are 3 Indonesians in front of me who upon check out told each other 'now we have extra 100 ringgit. What do we do with this much money?'. I truly understand their pain. They might be a simple traveller and just change enough money to travel. Maybe 50 ringgit deposit is enough. When you return the money back, they can use that for taxi to ferry terminal or airport. More than enough I think.
Room : Bigger than I expected. The double bed is comfy and the pillow is nice. But there is now wardrobe inside the room. Surprise. Other than that, the cleanliness and bathroom facility is just fine and I dont have anything to say. Decorations also simple but I dont expect much.
Breakfast : I dont mind the same breakfast daily, nasi lemak and bee hoon. I love them. But the amount is too little. I am not sure if I am supposed to take more than one. I decided not to. And if it is a 'buffet lite, you should also tell'. One guy took 3 nasi lemak and around 9-ish, a kid came down and so disappointed that everything was finished.
Staff : Super friendly. But but but, your Nepali or Bengali staffs, they pat a dog at the stairs just outside the the dining area. We saw them. We lodged a formal complaint to the reception and I hope it is being dealt with. You should also ask your staffs to smoke someway far than just the outside of the dining area where everyone can see. It is not so nice to see someone who is serving drinks and stuffs holding a cigarette. I know the reality of F&B and hotel industry, people smoke in all sectors. But at least hide them away.
Satisfaction : Extremely. I would recommend this to simple traveller like me. Thank you.
