We had booked this place via an online booking agency for a one night stay before going over to Pangkor Island, and knew that we weren't in for luxury, but it seemed fine in the website pictures. We walked along the waterfront and arrived to the back side of the hotel, and we honestly thought that there had been some mistake... from the run down dried-out fountains to the deserted garden and the bleak facade of the hotel... it seemed as if this hotel was no longer in business. Entering the lobby we discovered a receptionist and thought that we'd still give it a go. So we ignored the fishy smell, the ghostly vibe, the comically malfunctioning elevators. Unfortunately we weren't pleasantly surprised by the room... after a long walk down a long, run down hall way (with views of the not so inviting pool...) we found our room extremely stuffy and smelly, with ants all over the floor, which was by the way also covered by hairs. The vibe was so gloomy that we decided to go down to the ferry jetty and see if we could find somewhere else to stay the night. So after finding an available room at the Puteri Bayu (which happened to be almost just as dirty and unpleasant) we went back to the hotel to tell them we couldn't stay there. As we had booked and pre-payed via an agency the manager insisted that we couldn't get our money back (they get the money from the agent so i actually don't really see why not...) - but our minds were made up. At least the manager was friendly enough to give us a ride down to the jetty with all our luggage.
