“Wished I've viewed the room before checking in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Went with a friend dorm to Miri and was looking for a place to sleep. Palace inn looked ok from the outside so we decided to give it a try since room was only rm89 a night. Went into the room, asked to change to another room cos the condition was so terrible, at the end paid for the room but checked out same night. The room looked like a scene from a horror movie. No refunds can be given back the reason being 'it's already in the system'. Never ever gonna recommend this place unless they do a major maintenance and refurbishing.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with friends

I booked this place for my travelling trip to miri. The staff they are quite helpful but they need major fix on the room. The location wise is quite decent as it walking distance to the city.
I bunk in one of the room and a major turn down after seing the room state. Water leaking in the bathroom, toilet bowl are not clean... oh my...i think they need help from tv show "Hotel Impossible" to help them up. charging RM75 per night is a bit nuisance with the room condition.

The aircond is working but you need to bear with the noise. The TV reception is not that good as well.

Room Tip: if you don't mind to stay here, please bear with the aircond sound and please buy your own bottl...

Positives:

1. Location not that far from main city shopping complex
2. Cheap
3. Free WiFi
4. Friendly staff

Negatives:

1. Smelly damp and moist bedrooms
2. No elevators
3. Dirty rooms
4. Dirty utensils in rooms
5. Dirty water (brownish)
6. Old and stained rooms
7. Tv with local channels only (blur and no signal)
8. Electrical socket uncovered, exposed and not working
9. Insecure environment
10. Dirty bedsheets
11. Pillows probably 10-20 years old
12. Wall pictures probably 20-30 years old

Many more negatives which I'm just too tired to write down. The only reason I stayed here for the night is because all other hotels in Miri at this end of year time are fully booked!

The rooms were smelly and damp. Pretty much everything was broken. It was our first night in Malaysia but I feel that it was way overpriced for what it was.

We are here for one night at this moment before going to Mulu park. We chose this because we wanted an affordable option with attached bathroom. We even checked the room before check-in. However, we did not check thoroughly. The bathroom is really dirty, water comes out of the toilet all the time. The worst thing is noise: the neighbour's A/C sounds like a very old fridge standing beside your bed. The karaoke club opened at about 8 PM and seems to become louder every hour. It is 10:45 PM now and it is not possible for me to sleep.

This was the worst hotel of our trip, the room smelled bad and the carpet was dirty and had burn marks and other unidentified 'spots'. The girl who worked at the reception didn't speak proper English. The sheets were old and were not able to get clean anymore.
There was a door between our room and the neighbours and it sounded like they were in the same room, happy she only kept sneezing noting else :-)

On arriving we were ignored by the young reception staff for about 5 minutes whilst they continued to chat amongst themselves. We paid 85 MYR for a superior double room. The room was filthy, dark and smelt of damp with worn furniture.There was damp on the walls,cracked paint and noise coming from the club downstairs.They showed us to another room which was only slightly better se we decided to go.
At first they refused to give us our deposit back so we had to speak to the guy in charge.Because we had paid the deposit in cash before seeing the room they eventually gave it us back but this took ages to sort out.
The rooms look completely different to their website which is very misleading.
Can not be certain but got the impression that this was a brothel.
We left and paid $10 more to stay in Somerset Hotel across the road which was much better.
Not much to do in Miri,we only used this as a stop over to Brunei.
