It's been a year and a half since I stayed in this hotel and this time it wasnt a great experience. Its in a really good location right in the middle of the city, close to bars and the shopping mall but there were several things about the room that were not so nice and gave the impression of a run down hotel.
1. My bathtub filled with water up to my ankles when I took a shower
2. The shower water wasnt that hot
3. the toilet wasnt easy to flush, you had to physically lean against this big round silver button to flush each time
4. My room smelt musty the entire time i stayed there
5. I have dust allergies and the room was quite dusty so I sneezed a lot, plus the rooms are carpeted and the hotel is old so a lot of dust was still in the carpet
6. NOISE - you can hear every door close from the rooms upstairs, downstairs and on your floor - so if you're a light sleeper like me, you better bring ear plugs because from 6 am onwards you can hear doors closing, showers running etc.
7. The aircon controller was broken the first night I was there and I was freezing at night and then they had to completely replace the controller and it still wasnt quite right in terms of temperature adjusting - this is very frustrating the entire time I was there - it was either too hot or too cold!! Not comfortable!
1. Service was fast and helpful - everything i asked for the staff did correctly, like bringing me bath towels, once i asked for salt...
2. The food at this hotel is surprisingly tasty, the nasi lemak is good
If you want to stay at this hotel, try to get the rooms facing the waterfront - I stayed in those rooms last time and I had a much better stay than this time.
