    Airport (taxi cost RM45) to hotel around 30 minutes. Hotel staffs including housekeeping are nice & helpful. Early check in (12pm) without any extra charge & questions. Room (1 queen 1 single bed) with 5 blades fan & super cooling air con are so good. Bed, pillows make us have good sleep. Bathroom very clean but need to bring own toothbrush. Beside hotel, after 4pm many foods stall (New Lane) & super peak during holiday.
