Chose to stay here since it was the cheapest among other available hotels trough Agoda. Since I have stayed in Perak for about 3 years before, i knew that this hotel's building is a quite run down. No clue about the rooms though, so fingers crossed, went in the hotel.
Location wise is excellent as it's near to Lumut town, within walking distance if one likes walking and the exercise. The room (314) was clean (thank God) with 2 single beds and all other necessities.
HOWEVER, the utilities provided definitely needs replacement. especially the kettle. Its obvious that we got an old one. it was rusty and yucky that my husband told me not to use it. We bought our own mineral water since they didn't provide any. So no hot drinks made in the morning either. The toilet also needed to be improved as it was also quite rusty, the towels have those yellow spots (showing that its an old towel too, so we chose to use our own towel) and there was a cockroach in the tub. The curtain in the bathroom also needed replacement. Major yuck with dark spots (bacteria). The cupboard's hinges needed to be fixed, had to open it (extra) carefully.
But on the plus side, there is hot water even though one really have to adjust it to get the right temperature. The loo was also working well. Aircond working fine, got a room with old carpet but clean. All else is ok.
MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT in my opinion is there was no buffet breakfast available. I usually look forward to stay in hotels for their (buffet) breakfast since i love to eat, but here we have to choose from the menu. Portion and type of food are per-determined according to bfast sets. I really don't like this type of breakfast.
So like everyone else's review, it's good enough for a one-night stopper. But to come back to this hotel which does not provide buffet breakfast, no thanks.
