Review by Traveloka users

5 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

The staff are friendly but it is quite noisy at night when I checked in. There were some workers doing metal hammering kind of stuff in midnight. Other than that, it's okay.
Was a pleasant stay. They had a good balcony facing the public place, and a great location with walking / driving distance to the town.
Noisy at night. Even when people next door speak a bit louder can hear from your room.
Average hotel for a budget hotel.
In terms of cleanliness need to be improved again

To far from "town"
Arung Hayat has cheap and very basic rooms, it's alright for one night if you are just passing through. Staff in nice and they have 5RM shuttle that can take you to Semporna in under 10 minutes. There's really nothing around in the area.

Rats and no electicity
The rooms are dirty, and did not have any furniture else then the bed. There was a big opening, kind of window, in the bathroom, not nice when you shower (with salty water)! We had a rat in the room and they stop electricity from 6 am to 6 pm, so no air con in the day! And it was also difficult to get the air con, the guy from the hotel was telling us that we did not pay enough for the room (that was already expensive!). The breakfast is include, but it is really cheap and cold and there is no wifi (even if it was writting in the internet). It is sad because the diving staff are really nice, we had a good time hanging out with them. We went there because we it was cheaper on the internet, but with the divings and food, it is cheaper to go with a whole package (like mabul beach resort, that include all your meal with a all you can eat good buffet!)

Dirty rooms
Extremely dirty and unorganised hotel. Rats can be seen around the rooms. The water is salty and unclean. The aircon doesn't work and no electricty in the morning and afternoon and sometime in the middle of the night. The bed is smelly and causes skin to red rash.

Je n'y reviendrais pas
Séjour 1 nuit chambre double AC Sdb eau chaude Wifi seulement dehors et quasiment inutilisable Le patron n'a pas voulut donner la chambre pour 55 RM affichés sur le site web, payé 60 donc avant de partir au City Inn hôtel bien mieux pour 58 RM. Arung Hayat est situé loin du centre de Semporna et l'accueil est approximatif ... Je déconseille, allez en ville pour le même prix voire moins cher.
