My stay was really bad cause a few days I didn't have water at all in the morning. In one day I had even brown water. Breakfast was very poor, no choice. This hotel is very old, they don't maintain the condition og the hotel. Only one was good is service.

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.
