              Premier Twin
              Stayed 4 nights in February 2023

              Family suite connected to twin room”

              We were very happy to stay in 3 connected rooms. Stayed in the Family suite which is 2 rooms with a King bed and a single bed each. This has a connecting door to a twin room. So the whole family was connected with 2 bathrooms to share, 1 King bed and 3 single beds altogether. The hotel is walking distance to Aman mall and the Tower. There are eateries around at night and plenty of activities for the children (til midnight) around the tower. Grab is easy.

              All basic facilities are provided, including a mini bar, iron, towels, toiletries. Toilets and room are clean, though there's this 'old hotel' kinda smell & vibes. But it's ok, considering it is all clean & comfy. Perhaps the hotel management can consider to change the bed linens, which color is no longer white. Looks a bit worn out. Location is very strategic, Aman Central & Pekan Rabu are within walking distance.

              We chose this hotel because it has 2 king bed in a room because we travel with 3 kids. Most hotels either has 2 single bed or 1 king bed. The hotel just refurbished their rooms and the room is clean. No dusty floor. No damp smell eventhough closed for few months due to MCO. Near to Aman Central Mall,Balai Seni,Masjid Zahir (walking distance) The room is very spacious (family room) located at 1st floor.

              We are glad that our Executive Suite with 2 king size beds was ideal for your family. Our newly refurbished rooms have most amenities that you normally find in 5-star hotels. We had thoroughly cleaned and sanitized all our rooms prior to re-opening after the long MCO lockdown. We look forward to serving you again on your next trip to Alor Setar.
