      Good location”

      Pros: Walking distance to a lot of places of interest. Love the peranakan style house with a koi pond within. Cons: One of the staff not helpful. We were given 2 rooms on the ground level. Aircon obviously not cold even after two hours. Room was stuffy and I was perspiring. I compared with my kid’s room next door and it was cool, so that confirmed that the aircon in my room was not working. However, when that staff came to check, she said it’s working. I insisted on changing room as I would be staying there for 4 nights, and I also noticed that their rooms in the 2nd floor were unoccupied. She reluctantly acceded but mentioned to her fellow colleagues in their own language (thinking that I don’t understand) that the aircon is working just not cold enough. Really lacking in customer service. Having said that, the rest of the staff are nice though. Request for rooms on the 2nd floor as it’s brighter and looks much better. Water pressure poor, esp morning, cannot shower well.

      One of the three rooms we rented had large holes in the wall. They were kind enough to allow us to exchange the rooms but it was clear that it was not a priority to upkeep the hotel. It is conveniently located close to food stalls and was a good home base for our group.

      Mystery odour ”

      There are mystery bad odour in the bathroom which i thought came from the sink and later thought came from the ventilating fan. Makes showering traumatising. The bed had sink in the middle and in my opinion should be changed. The maintenance of this place is not very good although its location is strategic.

      Close to many famous restaurants and worth the price. But maybe the owner should change the shabby blanket and few other things to make it look more presentable.
