“truly worst hotel i ever stayed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2011

booked this hotel through the hotel website with attractive rate and i paid it all during the booking.
we arrived at the before the check-in time and the hotel main door was undergone some renovation and the way blocked by the building materials so car cant drive up to main door.
bad thing is no one help us to carry the heavy luggage and we got to carry it all the way from the road side to the hotel lobby!

after we put down our luggage and came back few hours later. we able to check in smoothly i guess. but apprarently not!! once we opened the hotel room, it was still in mess. oh my god, we're suspecting ourselves enter people's room. but how come we can open up with the door key provided?

after long investigation, we came out with a conclusion that the hotel room not yet cleaned up after the previous guests checked out! omg, this is the first time i met this situation. then we quickly rushed to the lobby and told the staff. the staff just answered us that it was a mistake, he should have gave us other room key.
WHAT A BIG MISTAKE I EVER SEEN BEFORE!

If not i've paid all and the money is not refundable. i think i will leave the hotel as quickly as i can.
i promised myself that i won't return to this hotel anymore. the front desk staffs overall are very impolite and no manners!

Would not recommend this hotel for travellers looking to enjoy in Sabah. Probably better suited for people who needs a room for the night before heading elsewhere,high level of tolerance needed though

i stayed for one night end of December 2010,and well i wouldn't choose the hotel if it wasn't because of the price.... the price was OK, cheep but the receptionist and the service was bad!! just bad!! too bad!! unfriendly and rude receptionist! i check in at a single room, no view as i only booked a superior room, and tat was acceptable..check in was fine until i found out that the room cannot be open, something wrong with the key..i had to go down to the reception despite my room was on higher floor...they should provide a house phone in every floor so it will be easy for a situation like this...the receptionist then apologies in insincere ways n look... and i asked for a spare keys as i mention wat if the keys wouldst work as well..bt the receptionist was confidently said that it will work fine...i then had to agreed!!... n here come the bad things, the second time keys couldnt open the door as well....then me as HAPPILY i could be went down to the receptionist to change the key back...the same receptionist looked at me and mention that i will be with me shortly as she was with other guest...then when came to my turn with a sour face the receptionist ask that something wrong with the door itself not the key..after insisted i then settled for 2 bed room...the receptionist hand me the key of the new room without SORRY n plus a SOUR face in her!!! that was so Rude n unacceptable!!!!

My first time in KK,and i stayed in this ghastly hotel.The room was horrible there was roaches everywhere..and the bed covers & towels smells disgusting! I wonder what detergent soap they used.The hotel lobby & lifts looks very old.I didnt eat my breakfast there as i was thinking how horrible & dirty the hotels kitchen.The hotels staff wasnt really helpful.
I definitely wont go back to this Cockroach hotel!! My first and last stay!
It's a waste of money,and the location is really really bad, i couldnt sleep until 5am because of the noise coming from the highway as if theres a drag racing every night.
Only COCKROACH lovers could ever stay in this hotel!!!
