just got back from a one night stay at this particular "wonderful" hotel. when i checked in, everything looked in order, it was clean and comfy. then the nightmare started. when i turned on the shower, the water that came out smelled like sewage. i let the water run for a while, then it was ok. i noticed the bathroom door was odd-looking and couldn't close properly. it was ajar after i finished bathing. the next morning when i wanted to take a shower, i closed the door. to my horror, i couldn't open the door. i was stuck in the bathroom for FIVE HOURS! i kept banging the door and screaming, but to no avail. thank God my friends came to rescue me when they realized i was missing and wasn't answering my phone. the firemen and police came and broke the door to my room and the bathroom door. my friends talked to the cleaners and even they confirmed the toilet doors in the hotel are dodgy and people can easily get locked in. the bathroom door key they had wasn't working, and what's more, i didn't even lock the door while i was bathing because i was alone in the room.

this hotel is not properly maintained. the manager was very rude to me when i finally got out of my death trap. no apologies, he in fact told me there is nothing wrong with the bathroom door. i couldve died (i have asthma and had a minor attack in the bathroom because i was cold), yet the manager was nonchalant about it. what's more, he told me to my face he is not the manager, when 10 minutes ago, he told my friend that he is. when i got dressed and went downstairs, he was nowhere to be seen. ran off!

i do not recommend this hotel at all, especially when you are travelling alone. it might be convenient, but it's just not worth it.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with friends

City Hotel is one of many budget hotels in Banting town, Selangor. It is located in the town itself, offering basic accommodation at affordable prices. It is about 40 mins from KLIA airport.

There are many types of rooms here - from single / double bed to a 2 rooms penthouse on the top floor. Unless you really require the penthouse, I wouldnt recommend cos you need to climb 4 flight of stairs to get there .... yup there is no lift or elevator in the hotel. After all its a budget hotel. The hotel is clean and the water pressure is good with plenty of hot water.

Parking is free in front of the hotel ... it can be quite full during weekends since many families would stay here and make the daily trip to Morib beach - about 15-20 kms away. Accomoodation at Morib is more expensive and limited. Next to the hotel is an eatery - Mamak restaurant which opens 24 hours a day. So it is really convenient for you to get some food should you become hungry while staying there.

So if you ever need a hotel in Banting town, you can try this hotel which is clean and convenient.

Room Tip: Room 101 comes with 1 kingsize bed + 1 single bed - perfect for a small family. Its huge and you nee...
