“Disappointed”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Poorest quality as compared to other novotel hotels-old and smelly corridor carpet [poorly maintained]. Carpark limited space. Breakfast lounge- old and limited choice of food. Hotel shuttle to city- not available.

Well presented hotel. Our room could have done with some tlc, it was beginning to look a bit tired, comfortable nonetheless. Location next to the mall is very useful for stocking up on products from the supermarket for a day trip, and has a good selection of reasonably priced restaurants there (note it opens at 1100!). Breakfast was busy but delightful, first time we got to try kaya (ended up buying jars at the supermarket to take home!), lots of fresh fruit, pastries and usual Eastern/Western fayre. A good base for exploring the surrounding areas.

Myself and my partner were recommended this hotel by Flight Centre when booking as were only staying one night before going to do a 3 day wildlife cruise. The hotel is very far out of the main town of KK and there is not much around the hotel itself. The hypermall was disappointing, the ones in KK centre like Centre Point are a LOT better! The staff were exceptional, they let us check in very early as our flight arrived at 6:30am and were very attentive and friendly. The rooms were basic although felt dated. The pool area was clean and quiet during the day. All in all it was an ok hotel for one night but we wouldn't stay again purely based on its location.

For me Novotel is a big name in hotel industry but Iˊm quite frustratedwith it. First of all,there is no vallet parking in this hotel. I guess they hope people will park at 1B mall. Quite dissappointed.

After checked in,my husband and I decided to take our dinner buffet in this hotel. We assumed that the food will be much variety because the price is RM55 per head. Once more,we felt very disappointed because not much variety and most of the food is tasteless. Sorry to say this.

After dinner,we went to our room. Itˊs pool view. My daughter love it but quite dangerous because we can open the window. They should lock it up. Not safe with traveller with young children. Got some stain here and there. Nice bathroom because they have big see through glass but you can cover it up with silver curtain. The toiletries provided not really satisfied me.

Not many tv channels and itˊs blurry. Luckily we only checked in for 1 night. I guess the pros of this hotel is the location in 1B mall and so many cons that they need to improve because Novotel is a well known hotel. I hope the management will do something to improve their service. But,their staff very helpful and friendly. Thank you for that.
