    My gf works for an airline, and this is one of her crew hotel.. However she does not know anybody from the hotel. By emailing or call the hotel staffs isn't much of a use because they will of course say that their hotel is good and all..

    Thank kietgnoel..

    I went for the trip in Jan..

    Hotel staffs are very warm. But apart from that, it's one of the worst hotel I've ever stayed in terms of the price range and star rating.

    It's so old that the superior room I was given has a very mouldy smell.. there were so much dust at the corner of the room, the cupboards, I thought nobody clean it.. They offered to spray air freshener though.. Then I requested for a change of room, but because I checked in during evening time, they only have 1 more superior room left, which is only marginally better.. So they gave me a free upgrade to the deluxe.. It's better, but nothing much to shout about.

    If not for my gf's company discount, I doubt we will return to the hotel the next time.
