Reviewed 17 July 2013

We stay there for 3 nights. The pool was dirty. My dad went for a swim and couldn't stay it. The hotel supply us with gas, stove but no wok. When we request for a wok, additional fees is charge.

There are no wifi in room and the wifi in lobby are very slow. However, the thing I couldn't figure out is why we need to park in the basement of the shopping mall? we need to drag our luggage around in order to get to the hotel lift. Even better, they will lock the door after certain hour and we are force to search around to look for stair. The parking fee however can be waive by confirming your stay with your door card at the reception.

The lobby attendants told us that the breakfast was a buffet cost only rm 2.5. However, it wasn't. The breakfast is NOT a buffet and you are paying for what you're taking. The price is reasonable tho.

There are a grocery store in the shopping mall near the stair where you can get delicious food there too. So it was very convenient. They sell shampoo, even detergent too.

The most terrifying part was when my sister is lock inside the toilet due to the lock malfunction. The technician took about one hour to dismember the lock and open the door. It was in the midnight and we are very thankful for the technician prompt responce. However, I think they could do a better job such as maintaining the place and replacing the wear item before such incident happens.

The hotel was quite humid, we can see moss growing outside the windows. Inside was clean but there will be a lingering smell of humid. Since we not here to stay in the room i say it is reasonable for the price we are paying.

Is 5 min outside KK town which bypass all the traffic jam. After long trip of seafood meal I can had hazard free traffic back to hotel. And the hotel is located near the main road, therefore going any places in KK is easy and simple. The hotel food is reasonable and the beer is cheap.

overall this place is very near to KK town. The unit are spacious and clean. The only thing they need to improve is the maintenance of the unit such as fixing the lightings & spoiled items in the unit.

I just checked in today and left comment here.When checked in, everything goes smooth. Took room at 4th floor. But, when req for higher floor, been rejected as room fully booked. One of my friend call to sales department and ask whether any higher room for rent, answer is yes. Then my friend call back to reception as she felt like being cheated. If cannot change as been assigned, tell us directly and do not tell us it is fully booked. Staff at reception further asked us to wait for while,she checks and try to arrange for us the higher floor. In the end, we changed a room to 13rd floor.

Now again we met a problem. Wifi problem. One of my friend from oversea who extremely needs the Internet req password from reception, for first time, they gave us for 6 pieces paper with different username & password. Unfortunately,we can't even search for the said wifi. After came back from outside, when pass by the reception, again my friend ask from them regarding the wifi issue. They give my friend another 4 pieces of paper written username & password. however, we still unable to connect the wifi. We think that maybe something wrong with the wifi, so I call to the reception ask for reason. A girl who answered my call, before I'm finished my question, she already answer that she try to check the network, and hang up my call immediately. Shocked me. I'm keep waiting for the call, and waiting ...waiting.... There's no one give me a call back. my friend finally call to operator and seek for duty manager. In within 5mins, the DM called back and informed us that he already inform the maintance department to restart the network. It's so disappointed and we hope our problem will fix soon. However, until now, the problem haven't solve yet.

Req for extra towel & toilet roll, needed to have extra charge. Understand about the extra charge for the towel, however the toilet roll, I think it's quite weird to have extra charge. 1 toilet roll for 6 person for 1 day?how can It be enough? Is that everyone use for 1 piece of toilet paper? Or the management expect us to use the water after go to toilet? Opppssss, sorry. I cannot accept it totally.

i would say the staff of the "hotel" is helpful, but there are a lot to be done to the hotel itself.

The cleanliness of the apartment, the door way, the car park, the pool and so on.

I wouldnt ask for much for the price i am paying for, but the hygiene is not something i can compromise. to be fair, it is not that bad, if you dont mind bringing along ur mop, broom, and some cleannnig cloth ...

Although we booked the 'Deluxe Room', once we arrived, it felt like it was the value room. The room was absolutely filthy, there was still human hair in the drains of the showers as well as in the corners of the apartment. The microwave did not have a turn-table and was splattered with crusty, dried food material.
The apartment had an odour, and made us feel dirty. We didnt even feel comfortable enough to take our shoes off.
Due to us paying in advance online - there was no refund for our 5 night stay. We had to leave the hotel and went to the Hyatt Regency which was exceptional.
All i can say is that i was and still am shocked.
The staff were rude and unhelpful.
Do not trust this website.

We booked from 21 Dec 2012 to 26 Dec 2012. A 3 bed apartment. The interior of apartment is clean but no attention to details was given. Cupboard in kitchen were falling apart, empty no cutlery, pans nor plates. We have to request for these? It was advertised as a fully furnished apartment.
Hall way to the apartment needs upgrading because it is a long walk from the lifts and is dark and smelly.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask if the place if furnished. Watch out the kitchen cupboard falling off.
