Exceptional 10.0
Our room wasn't soundproof. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

A Pretty Heritage looking Hotel
Love the stay at this new hotel, the modern decor with clean cut lines. Room is spacious, and well laid out, clean and come with lots of pillows! Great location and surrounded by lots of good eateries, but yet sheltered from the busy main road of Jalan Macalister. Easy to walk around to explore nearby areas of interest (provided it doesn't pour), and street parking is easily available around the hotel. We will certainly be back, and highly recommended 😉

Good 6.0
cleanliness and unexpected condition
There are urine stings on the toilet plate of the room and electricity stoppage happened on one day's morning. Yet, polite staffs and daily room cleaning service compensate those poor experience.
