A Disappointing Hotel
I booked a Standard room in this hotel. It comes with buffet breakfast. By the time I checked in, it was already late at night. After checked in, I went into the room and used the toilet, and terrible thing happened. I didn't take off my socks and they all became wet because the floor was wet! What the... Never mind, since it is a budget hotel, I accepted it.
Then, I went out to meet my friend. When I came back to the hotel, the card didn't work. I told receptionist about the problem and he handled it quite professionally. He apologized to me, followed me to the room, checked the card, confirmed it didn't work, and then only he upgraded it to a bigger room: Premier Delux (Normal).
Much terrible thing happened... The room that I got was a smoking room, it smelled terrible. The door was malfunction and it cannot be locked. The bed looks dirty, dirt spots can be seen easily on the pillows and the blanket. Even worst is I had the feeling that someone had just used it. As for the bathroom, the same thing happened again. The bathroom floor was wet, water was dripping from the shower head. The room was terribly eerie! But I told myself, since I already paid for it, I should stay there because I didn't want to waste my money. However, when I was taking shower, the eerie sensation grew stronger and my sixth sense told me that I must immediately leave that room. So, after taking a very quick shower, I left immediately. At the same night, I booked another room at T.S. Hotel.
I would say the location is not bad because I managed to find a few restaurants near by. However, parking is a serious problem. The parking lots in front of the hotel were full because there is a disco (if I was not mistaken) in the same shop lot row with the hotel (and I guess this is the reason). I had no choice but to park my car a bit further from the hotel. When I was parking my car, a group of 4 to 6 youngers were just squatting in front of my car, smoking and looking at me. Honestly, I didn't feel safe at all staying at the hotel and walking around that area.
The next morning, I came back to the hotel. Before I checked out, I tried their breakfast. It was terribly bad because there was no option at all and there was also no replenishment! What I got was only leftover (a small portion of Bee Hoon and a piece of chicken nugget). Before I had mine, one of the staffs took half of the leftover (Bee Hoon and the nuggets) -.-"
