We had a very bad time when we stayed at the hotel la viva, poor bathroom, bad service, it has no internet connection (even though they said they have) uncomfortable place to stay I am more than a hundred percent that I will not recommend or even go back at this hotel because I had a lot of insects caused by bed bug! I actually wanted to make a incident report but I hope that they could just always keep everything neat clean very tidy.
- Backpacking
No mineral water provide. We have to use stairs But still clean. Still recommend
- Business travel
The room is not as good as expectation. Painting chemical smell. The emergency exit door was blocked by maintenance tools.
- Backpacking
Bad room ventilation, dirty bedsheet, pillow case, stained blanket perhaps, semen, bedbugs! Air-cond badly function.
- Romantic Vacation
Good location, clean but the bathroom door lock not function. And the table phone not functioning at all.
- Backpacking
The location is good especially for a solo traveler. Plus, the price is affordable.
- Backpacking
The room is not comfortable to stay and there is no telephone provided.

good services ever !
I stayed at a superior single room without window at level4.When i arrived at the hotel and started to checkin i was asked for deposit RM50 but its okay i understand that is for the towel,key,and maybe for other damages if happen.I was given room no 305 and the room was very clean and smell good.The toilet clean no spider web no leaking pipe or hose.What i like most was the receptionist the pregnant women who always help me when i need something.She was friendly and like to smile.When i ask for slipper and mineral water she told me they dint provide it so she give me a bottle of water thats her mine,how sweet and kind she are.She look different than others receptionist.Satisfied and really happy with her services.KEEP IT UP GIRLS.

Terrible services , dirty toilet and room not secure
I stayed at a single room with shared bathroom for 4 nights unfortunately i booked online. Thats the worst hotel ive ever been. I tried to keep open mind, i know its cheap so i dont mind they have no elevator my room at the highest level which is fifth floor. So of course i dont expect much in terms facilities. But the thing is their services. Its really bad! They dont even try to help me! . Its not like i demand a 5 star services . i only asked for basic things like a simple mirror because the toilet also dont have a mirror. They said they will give, luckily the next day i saw a cleaner cleaning at all the rooms on my floor level n then i saw all the other rooms got a mirrors except mine . its just a simple light plastic mirror anyway its not tht hard to take n give. And all the room thts has a mirror are not vacant , im the only visitor on tht floor besides the cleaner family. The other request , also never get , they promise to send iron to my room. i asked for air condition's remote control, because its set auto to be the coldest mode whenever i open the power supply. They said the remote , need to share with other vacant at the same floor level as mine. someone on my floor level must have used it but never return it back. After what happened last time they still lying telling me couldnt find but i know they dont even come up and ask the tenants. Theres no phone on the room so they need to get to fifth floor and ask the other vacant . Nope i follow up still no solutions they just said they couldnt find. I know they dont even trying to help out. The toilets n room also dirty i can see the children pampers in all toilets , its very smelly. N tht coming from the hotel's cleaner s child they staying in one big happy family in front of my room. Not from other tenant. Because tht room suppose to be for single ppl but they live in there with her child n husband. The room also not secure, can be access easily by the cleaners husband. How do i know? Because last time when check in took time for me to get my room ready, because they lost the spare key. They only have 1 key for my room n they gave me tht room even though they knew they have no spare key. Besides any other room at same level. The next day I testing them by leaving my key inside my room n ask them to help me open. So with no keys, they used random cards to unlock the door. in just a split second the room is unlock by cleaners husband . From that moment i knew i cant put my laptop n expensive item in the room

The location of the hotel is strategically in the city area. Cheap room i booked via hotels.com. but the condition of the room n toilet is not up to my satisfaction. Water leakage from ceiling in the toilet. The flush is not working. But the room come with attached shower, lcd tv and even a kettle. Aircondition is also ok. Worth to stay there if you concern with ur budget for your accomdation
