“Don't expect much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

It's actually only suitable to stay for the night before taking the ferry to Tioman. Parking seems to be free in front of the hotel at night, so if you arrive after 18:00 and leave before 8:00 you should be fine.

Quality is not existing, it's old, not even sure if it's cleaned every time a new guest checks in, and there is no elevator which is not very nice when you stay at the 3rd floor and have luggage and scuba dive equipment with you.

The doors are made from toilet door material, so very thin and obviously not safe at all. So don't leave anything expensive behind.

The blanket is from some very thin material, almost falling apart, like it's being used during WW2..........

I had better hotels for 70RM per night. To me it seems that they are stretching the time that this hotel can be used until no one wants to stay here anymore.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the lowest floors, so that will be the 1st floor, so that at least you don'...

First of all, this is real budget hotel. There are things in this hotel really cannot be compared to a 5 star hotel. But most importantly it is clean and everything is in good working order. So in general I had no complain. It is cheap and good value in my humble opinion.

I use it as a stopping station before next morning boat trip to Tioman Island.

Cannot comment on embassy as they lost or reservation, which seems to be a recurring theme in reviews. After some panic they put us up in their other hotel 'Sweet hotel' which was clean, basic and good although noisy at front rooms.

Its very simple hotel but offers enough for the small amount you pay. The rooms are clean and bug free, which is saying a lot in the port town of Mersing. The prices are reasonable and the street traffic is not so loud at night. Its a good place to sleep at night, not to hang out during the day. It's ten minutes walk to the ferry and/or bus station. There are food places and stores in the same street. They have Wi-Fi but it's not very good. There are internet cafes close by which are open very late. Basic but decent accommodation if you're stuck for a night in Mersing like I was. Location is hard to miss when you arrive in Mersing, and everything is less than a 10 minutes walk away.

We stayed one night on our way to Tioman Island. Room was OK but we were missing bed sheets and the comfort was quite poor so we didn't get much rest. No breakfast was included in our booking. Busy street and noisy during night. Approx 5 minutes walk to the jetty, where you also can get a great breakfast. Make sure that you are checked in at the jetty at least an hour in advance.

Room Tip: Really poor quality on TV. Noisy rooms. No elevator.
