“Hotel Seri Malaysia? More Like A Student Dormitory To Me!”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Been there on the 1st March and stayed for a night.Booked for 2 room ( Room 233 & 234). Room was spacious and staff was ok.The big problem with this hotel is that the bathroom was so terrible and room was mouldy (Room 233). I think the Housekeeping staff had been doing a great job but the management should upgrade the current bathroom tiles with a new one. They also need to re-paint the entire room as the condition was really bad.

Breakfast was average (with the price that I paid) of which remind me of my school day. Only nasi lemak, porridge, roti jala,limited choice of fruit and some "weird" sausage grilled with black pepper.Restaurant staff was not very attentive as most of them is only a trainee.I cant understand on why the Managent did'nt notice on the slow services overall although most of them (management staff) was sitting there the whole morning and enjoying their meals even at 0945hrs in the morning!

Overall, I wont return.

The hotel located quite a distance from the city centre, in fact is it located quite in a obscure location,..its actually located behind the stadium with hardly any road signs to guide you from the city centre. The only road signs that I notice was one at 100m from the turning to the hotel! We did tried to call front office to guide us to the place from the North South Expressway but it only makes things more confusing. There was only one person seem to be handing the front desk and we actually had to wait a good hour before being attended. May be the management needs to make more staffs available for a more faster check it?

The room was small, poorly furnished, breaking apart in every corner, poor bathrooms in which the water heater seem to be rudimentary and it seem to be poorly ventilated as the rooms seem to have the typical old socks scent!

What was annoying was the hotel seem to have a very poor sound proof system. There was a function at the cafe at the night and you could basically heard the whole function event from the room! And the function goes own well into the night!

The hotel do provide free wifi access, both you cant really get connected in the room. either you need to be at the walk way or leave open the room door to get the wifi access. And if you do have the internet access, it seem to be breaking down pretty often until the point that it will be more convenient to go the nearby KFC restaurant to get the internet access.

I think the only thing that I am happy about this hotel is that it does have spacious and ample parking.

The room is fairly furnished. The air condition should be better; it causes the room to be smelly.

The exterior and lobby area is nice. The coffee house is well equipped by less attraction. Require extra menus.

Overall, the hotel is right for its price.
