Worse Hotel in history!
Decided to book this particular hotel as a last minute stay over at JB for the Long weekends however little did we know it's by far the worse hotel you can ever lay your eyes on. First off the deal we got was cheap so why not, reached the hotel lobby there was no aircon and the entire counter was supported by fans plus the poor staffs were all sweating as if the management don't give a care in the world how they're running the show. Secondly, the lift. Oh boy was the lift scary as hell as the hotel storeys were in the 20's and above furthermore the way the lift door opens you'll have to wait 5-15 seconds for it to fully open (that includes when it's closing the doors too). Surprisingly you still need to pay RM$50 deposit for god knows what, they'll give you a so called aircon remote control over the counter as well for the room. When we reached our 18th floor level, the hallway was the only place that there was a working aircon. Reached our room and Guess what the room key they gave was spoilt and we had to go all the way back down via the slow opening lift door to get it changed. The room itself was so run down as if we were back in the past, a box tv, carpeted flooring which had an odd smell emitting from it, dirty toilet, quite a dusty room and lastly...... An aircon which only has the fan with no cooling air working. Imagine the disappointment we had for that place as we had to shift the freaking bed under the so called aircon just to get fanned. LOL. So people who's looking into this post if you're really bent on going to JB and this is the last hotel you'll ever see in any of those booking sites, just don't bother. Not forgetting there were bugs and cockroaches spotted outside and in the rooms too.

SUPER BAD
No towel, No basic bathroom amenities, No help from front office. For breakfast, you can choose between fried rice and scrambled egg and toast ONLY. if you lose card, they will charge you. I honestly want to suggest u that DO NOT CHOOSE THIS HOTEL if you don't want to waste your money

Bad
I stayed there 22/4/2017. Thank God it was only one night. Toilet seat was broken. My son had to fix it. There were ants both in the mugs as well as toilet bowl. Disgusting. The bedspread was not changed. Luckily i brought my own bed spread. And the breakfast was terrible. Bad experience.

Unexpected
Booked via booking.com which states that wifi is available at all locations within hotel. Unfortunately, wifi is only at lobby. Room was pretty shabby, no fridge no safe in room. Credit card machine unavailble and had to draw from nearby ATM before we are issued with the key. But front desk personnel are very friendly.
