Great stay. Really comfortable. Will stay here again if travel to Sarawak again.
No extra water supply during water problem. my room the aircond was not cool at all.
My two nights stay would have been great if not for some minor unfortunate experiences. First is the very frequent lift service interruptions and secondly the unfortunate breakdown of water system pump (as informed by hotel staff), which had resulted in unfavorable toilet and bath routines. Buckle up guys!
It's a great hotel. Everything is good but the room is smelly.
Great stay ( nearby restaurants and tourist attractions) comfy bed , friendly staff, spacious room, overall we satisfied and we give 5 star
Not bad.just average.maybe can come again
Had a great stay. Location was perfect.
Very good hotel to stay, esp who like to eat seafood as topspot at walking distance. Room facilities offer are excellent. Small drawback are sauna and swimming pool is small, pool crowded with people
Room ok for family vacation. Have Washing machine and dryer also kitchen. 1 Aircon and some plug not good, cannot use.
Very good service, helpful receptionist

Not coming again
For the first time, i did not feel safe in a hotel. The pictures are much better than the hotel is in reality. Air conditioning either freezing or not working in the second room we had. The service, horrible. We asked reception for a change of room due to barely sleepping the first night because our neighbors were having a party in their room, even though I knocked twice. They said we had to wait until 9am to change, and once they changed us, they just moved us to the room in front of our old room. When the neighbors alarm went off at 6am and was running for 15 min, we called reception and they did nothing. Finally the alarm stopped itself, but we were already awake. I was very disappointed with this hotel. Not worth the money and not coming back again.

Very poor, hardly 4-stars
The only reason why I didn't rate it only 1 star is because check-in was fast (or was that because I only arrived at 730pm?) and the bed was a notch above average. Other than that, I can foresee this place closing down within a few years. 1) My room door couldn't open properly, and I took literally about 2 minutes a) being confused as to whether I actually unlocked the door nor not and b) finally realising that I had to **shove** the door open. And I made the mistake of believing it would be easy-peasy after that - no way. Each and every time I wanted to open the door, it was an exercise in frustration. **And I'm very sure housekeeping is aware of this** Yet, the reception-counter looks shocked and, well, they checked me into that room. Such things are a symptom of the fact that management has largely given up on quality. 2) Coffee packets for breakfast - omg. Even in some of the cheapest places I've been to, they at least served fresh coffee in a pot. But for this place, I had to make my own coffee at the breakfast area the way I would if I was in the room. As for breakfast itself, please. One reviewer rated it 'average' and I'm like, dude, the breakfast at Cititel Express (Penang) was 'average' and even then it had great porridge and coffee. The 'breakfast' serving at Ariva Gateway was so bad I settled for two pieces of toast and that's it. 3) The excuse for a lobby, the physical **key** they use for rooms (as opposed to cards), the breakfast and the skeleton crew for staff suggests this place is a budget place. But the pricing, the 4-star status, the location and the name certainly don't. If the price was half what was charged, sure. Makes sense and, hey, it's even value for money. But given the way things are now? No way. Find somewhere else to stay.

Pleasant stay
Room is spacious and clean. Beautiful city view from my room window. Aircond temperature is just right and I had a peaceful sleep. Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Swimming pool is big and you can get nice view from there. Seafood foodcourt just a few minutes walks from the hotel. Just one downside, one of the elevator wasn't working when I stayed there and I had to wait longer than expected.
