LOCATION:
Accessible from the Putrajaya Highway (South Klang Valley Expressway, or SKVE). If you are driving from the North South Expressway (NSE, or PLUS Highway), take either the exits at Serdang or Kajang. Look out for the sign for University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) or Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC, formerly known as IKRAM). The hotel is located inside the UNITEN campus just past by the security guard.

DESCRIPTION:
A rather non-descript hotel located by a man-made lake inside the UNITEN campus. There are about 165 rooms in the hotel. Each room comes with air-conditioner, IDD phone, colour TV with selective channels, coffee-making facility an attached bathroom.

The lobby looks average with no particular feature that I could mention. The furniture used are of pretty old design. Hotel facility includes swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts, business centre, lobby lounge with no-fuss beverages, karaoke room, etc. As for eating joint, the hotel only has one, namely the Jupiter Coffee House where all-day buffet and a la cartè menus are served.

Interestingly, the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle bus service to Serdang KTM komuter train station and to the Mines shopping complex. I would prefer to take the train to Kuala Lumpur for real shopping instead of settling for the boring Mines shopping complex. There are about 4-5 scheduled departures daily. Please ask the front desk for the correct schedule.

The room rates are surprisingly expensive and may not justify what the hotel has to offer. Superior room starts at RM250 nett per night, while Deluxe room starts at RM280 nett per night. For those paying under corporate rate programmes, the rates are definitely cheaper. Otherwise, for RM250 per night, one might as well stay other nearby hotels such as Bangi Equatorial, Putrajaya Marriott or Renaissance Palm Garden.
