Room service was disappointing. I stayed for 2 nights but my room was not made up even though the "Make up room" signage was on.
/ 10
Best location! Rooms was big & clean.
Trust me, don't book this hotel, horrible hotel, you will regret it! I'm sorry to give it a bad rating, the worst hotel that I've been, I can get a better hotel with this price. Old hotel, worst conditions, lack of maintenance, very bad and old facilities, no wifi, drinking water not provided, TV no function, mold and smelly toilet, lighting spoiled, low flow of shower water with cold water (night), the lift is most scary.
Safety bos not functioning well and late responded by staff to settle this matter.

Toilet. Room. Too dirty. All in the rooms is too bad.
/ 10
Room was clean and neat. The room size is spacious and valued for money. Recommended
The hotel needs a coffee house or cafe for guest to have a breakfast dinner and so on. On the other hand, some tourist or guest will come and had a most pleasant stay. The rest is good accomodation.
Room 406. I asked for the air conditioner remote control. The housekeeper came and informed me that this room had no air conditioner remote control. He said, room 406 was not supposed to be opened for booking. So, why did you all still let me check in? Yes I was informed that this was the only room available upon my arrival. But I didn't know it was going to be this bad. Your toilet couldn't flush and was leaking to the max! Hair dryer was missing. Hello? And you've got the audacity to sell this room in the app for RM60? Luckily, this was only a 1 night stay. I won't ever check in to this hotel again. And hopefully, whoever is reading this too should avoid this hotel unless you've had a perfect life and need something to stress you out.
