“Value for Money”
Reviewed 11 October 2010

My family and I usually stay at Klana Resort when we're in Seremban, but this time, in order to save on costs, we decided to try out Carlton Star Hotel after seeing good reviews.

The rates are really low. And the room and bathroom is spacious. RM95 for a 3-pax room that looks out over the waterlogged 'longkang' (drain) next to the carpark. It looks nice at night for a flooded piece of land. No mosquitoes or flies or bad smells or anything. Just lots of pigeons.

The staff were friendly and very helpful. Best of all, there's a parking lot reserved for guests. Just that you need to get a coupon from the reception every time you want to leave. But that's just a small inconvenience.

The thing I didn't find satisfactory was the bath towels for our room. They're either extremely new, or not been used in a long time because they're not absorbent at all, and they leave a layer of lint on your body after you wipe yourself. Bring your own towels.

Also, the TV in our room didn't work very well. Fuzzy reception and some channels no audio, just white noise. But because we didn't stay in the hotel during the day, we didn't use the TV much.

Overall, the hotel was value for money, and situated at a convenient location. We won't hesitate to choose Carlton Star again if we're on a low budget travel.

I was not disappointed the minute I stepped into my room.
Can't ask for more, as the rate is very reasonable.
Though the hotel can still make some improvements on the bed sheet and pillows and pillow case, as they were obviously old and worn.
The only irritation at night was the noise from the motorcycles where the parking lot is just close by.
Overall, it is higly recommendable for the range of a budget hotel.

Its been a wonderful experience for us jouneying from one hotel to another. We did not intend to book ahead any hotel but choose a free and easy concept, any hotel that we think we need to settle in at night and Charlton hotel did just fine.

We manage to get 2 connecting rooms at the 2nd level facing the water view. Though wifi came only in the lobby, but we still manage to receive it on 2nd floor.The staffs were friendly and I'm very much pleasantly surprise when they refuse tips from me. Its only when I insists that they take it, quite sheepishly too.

They had a projector tv at night for viewing out in the open, while eating your dinner under the stars, though its located in the carpark, I find it quite happy to enjoy it.

Sometimes you could hear the screaming of motorcycle -mat rempit as they call it in the middle of the night, but other than that its throughly a wonderful experience. Oh and did I mention Secret Recipe & 7 Eleven and many various shops are only 5 mins walking distance?
