“Nice hotel with shopping center ”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel but a Wien down. Room where fine and as clean as they get in Borneo . Lobby was fine and wifi. Nice to have a shopping center next to hotel. Supermarked, atm, phone shop - by Digi sim card 1 mouth with1 gb data 30 rm. Only all the time - nice.
Down side. Pool area need big time repear and door to room need beather locks. Free box in lobby. Ok for overnigh to go on trips during the day.

From outside you might think that the place is abandoned or something.. It is connected to an old shopping complex. But once you get into the room, it was like a high end apartment with nice furnitures. All rooms are air-conditioned, towels, soaps provided. The pool is just outside our room (3rd floor). Overall it was a pleasant experience staying there. Suitable for 6ppl. But you can request for extra mattresses.

We stayed in the self serviced apartments. It was very convenient with the supermarket downstairs. Service was pretty variable. My children loved the swimming pool. Daily housekeeping was good. However, the kitchen utensils was old (need to rent kitchen utensils RM5/day). Needs upgrading of the kitchen utensils provided. Overall, it was sufficient for my need as location is superb.

We were early for check-in, the staff told us that we could check-in at noon. So, we went out and came back exactly at noon. To our surprise, the staff said the room was not ready yet and asked us to wait until 1 pm so we sat there and waited. At 1 pm, they said that they needed 20 more minutes. I understand that we were early but I wished they would have just told us the exact time for check-in so we could go do something else. The corridor from the lift to our room is so dodgy. I am actually scared that someone might come out and attack me. However, once I opened the door, the room decoration looks great, this is the only plus point. The most disgusting thing is the duvet and the pillow cases. They smell like somebody's been sleeping in the bed for weeks! I put the sign for the housekeepers to change them but I don't think that they did. The smell and the exact same stain on the pillow case are still there! The towels have some yellowish stain which I do not want to know how it got there. I still wonder if the housekeepers actually clean the room because the rubbish on the table is still there and the trash was not emptied. There are no cutlery whatsoever in the kitchen and the complementary coffee is definitely not coffee. If you don't mind all these and you want something cheap, this would do. But I won't be coming back, nor would I recommend it to anyone I know.

Can you imagine a kitchen without spoons? They shouldn't have quoted a kitchen which is absolutely useless without utensils! When I booked the rooms, there was no mention of add-ons, and I understand that they just recently changed that in their website! No wifi in rooms, air-conditioner which short-circuited upon use, and they ran out of toilet paper! Main door which need a strong push to close it and taps which are loosely attached to the sink. The only consolation is the location which is near to likas stadium which we had to go to.

Room Tip: No, no unless you need to go to likas.

We stayed here as a group of 6 adults and one baby. The 3 bedroom apartment was nice and had been refurbished. The service however was almost non existent! Each time we asked for food we were told the chefs were too busy! We wanted to order room service from the menu in our room but was told they don't offer room service. They didn't know why the menu was in the room! There are no cutlery (including spoons! )or cooking utensils in the "full kitchen"! On day 5 we discovered we had to pay for them per day! We won't stay there again on our next trip. The staff need to understand what service is if they want people to stay there. Building is in desperate need of repair.

Room Tip: The 3 bedroom apartment is good but make sure you check the room first. They tried to give us a room...

An older property, this condotel needs a makeover. The staff were are very friendly and helpful but the building itself is getting so old. The windows leak when it rains, every noise can be heard on the floors above and below you, and there isn't so much as a spoon in the rooms. Having a kitchen is only useful if you can use it. No Wifi in the rooms, and not within walking distance of KK.so you will need a car. The fitness facility is being renovated so no work out options either. On the plus side , comfortable bed, clean towels each day and plenty of hot water, and within walking distance of the Lakeside jogging track, which is lit in the evenings and safe.
The restaurant in the hotel serves the same boring items day in and day out.. they need a new chef with some adventure. Luckily there is a mall with a grocery and a few restaurants next door.
Great place if you need to be near the Likas Complex or are on a budget.
