Have just spent 30 nights at this hotel. What I can say is this is one very, very tired Flamingo who has come to roost by the Lake. During my stay I had to move rooms 3 times due to noise, and poorly maintained air-cons.
This hotel purports to be 3 star, in reality its struggling to reach 2 star. The breakfast restaurant displays the Delifrance logo and asked why they did not do all the Delifrance food range I was told but we just do a buffet meal choice..??
The breakfast menu was terrible, basically the hotel caters for Asian, mainly Chinese customers. There is no western choice other than eggs to order, which usually come fried to a crisp as the chefs do not know about turning the gas ring down so the eggs cook slowly. In the 30 days I has breakfast there the fruit choice never changed - Water melon, papaya and white melon. The only choice of jam was strawberry, when asked if they had any other choice I was rudely told 'No'.
Wi-Fi is proudly offered but after about 2 to 3 minutes it shut down so I bought a Maxis dongle. The only way to get internet access in this hotel.
The on suite is just basically a shower room. It did not bother me that there was no bath, but some guests might prefer a bath to taking a shower. If you like a bath - choose another hotel. The shower its self needed a really good clean, there is lots of mould showing between the tiles.
Unfortunately I cold not move hotel as the contract I was working on was paying the bill and at MYR170.00 / night including breakfast I should not expect anything better than what I got.
Was there anything good to report about this hotel. Well yes, on the 5th floor is a restaurant - The Sultani - I ate there 3 times and each time the food and especially the service by the Lady floor manager was excellent. The last good thing to report was the final checking out and leaving the hotel
