“Filthy, dirty, cockroaches. Horrifying.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

I have stayed at many cheap old budget hotels but this one was the most disgusting ever. Cockroaches crawling on bathroom counters and mirrors, dirty mold and grout throughout bathroom, refrigerator was rusted and gross like it belonged in some garage dump, old carpet with stains everywhere, bed and pillow were super hard and thin, linens had holes in them, ancient TV. I was on the 5th floor and could hear the downstairs disco thumping away. Really only stay here if you have no choice as you are on a Visa run to Malaysia or desperate for a hotel on the Thailand side of the border. Only good thing was staff was relatively friendly.

It's not really a hotel inasmuch as a support system for dangdut and extremely sleazy disco.

The hotel is an hour by road from Kelantan, a more conservative town than Sungai Golok. The hotel is something of an instution -- or anti-institution in one sense-- no doubt the by product of cross-border sexual repression.

Genting has a flair for the most repellent entertainment, such that it defies imagination. It's is like Dali-raped-by-Spinal-Tap-but-in-Thailand. Even that misses the nuance of it. The hotel boasts perhaps the worst bar-disco-whatever I have ever been to -- there's been a lot of competition, but I am pretty sure about this. It is so tacky, so horrid, so cheap, so deplorable, so absurd, so Asian-hetero-camp, so sleazy, so degenerate, that it actually has a certain honesty about it. I actually enjoyed the show!

The entire hotel is pock-marked by cigarette burns, it's as if they have hosted back-to-back tobacco conventions and forgot to clean up afterwards. I have no idea what the lumps were in my pillow. And I washed anything that was wrapped in plastic with the reassuring "santized for your convenience" stamped on it.

On the plus-side the nearby street food is amazingly good, probably the most variety in Patani.

Should you stay at Genting? It depends on what you're after I guess.

I like this hotel even if it was a little bit old and not so clean everythere. But the room was good and clean and it was hot water in the shower and basin. I find a little bit small cockroaches but they there only in the bathroom. The free wifi didn't work so well so if you need a good wifi connection in your room you maybe have to choose another hotel.

If you like to party this hotel is really good because they have a big disco on the 2ond floor and a karaoke room on the 3th floor. If you like to sleep early and don't like music this can be bad because you can hear the music almost everythere at the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days and if I go back to Sungai Kolok I think i'm gonna choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room at a high floor
