Very friendly, welcoming staff, helpful and attentive to any issues or questions I had during my 3 night stay. They had links with a tour place which they were not pushy in offering, but the tours were very reasonably priced (especially for a solo traveller, a very rare thing in Asia when you usually have to pay for 2) so...

Do agree that this hotel has seen it better days thru out the years but with the attractive price & within the city it should still be acceptable. Room is spacious and clean sheets. Bath area is clean . Location is good with F & B around the area with plenty of human traffics the moments you step out from... More

I stayed at the Hotel Malaysia for two nights and I was unimpressed. The front desk staff are not very helpful, and when asked questions they tended to mumble their answers. I had booked a room with a double bed, and was given a room with two single beds Breakfast was also disappointing, oily eggs, stale bread, and no real... More

On my way to Thailand holiday, I stop here. I thought staying only two nights, we will not need anything special. But this below that as well. Very dingy and dirty. The beds have bugs that kept us up all night. I am sure, this place must have been fancy back in the day. But now it is in need... More

This was my umpteenth time staying in this hotel for more than a decade, it used to be my top choice for accommodation when I visited the island, but sadly my most recent stay is a far cry from what it was many years ago. My room is not very clean and one of the light fixtures is not working.... More

we were brought to this place by a cabbie who had brought us from the border; it was expensive, especially considering how worn and barely clean our room was. the fixtures, mattress, and everything had obviously seen far better days, breakfast was the only high point, and even it was of erratic and inconsistent quality from item to item and...
