I arrived about midnight quite ready to sleep. It took about 15 minutes of messing around at reception to complete the simple process of checking into a pre-booked room. I went to the room and found that the air conditioner was a wreck, so at about 00:30 returned to reception. "Would I like maintenance to look at it, then". No, I certainly would not - I would like a room where everything works sometime around now, please. That did not turn out to be possible - but at least they found somewhere with working aircon.
The place was obviously cheaply built and furnished, and is now in the process of falling to pieces. That seems to be the usual way in Malaysia. It is therefore probably worth discounting reviews from when any hotel was new, and checking out the later ones. Expect this hotel to get steadily worse.
Rock hard beds seem to be a common thing in Malaysian hotels. Maybe some people like them, but I don't. There was a gap of about 2 inches under the door that let in noise from the corridor. Hot water in the shower but not, for some reason, in the sink. Boiled the kettle to shave.
Checked out first thing in the morning after a stay of about 7 hours - that says it all. See Klagan Hotel for somewhere rather better that is close by.
