“AVERAGE STANDARD”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

i come to sibu to enjoy music festival and Due to the other hotel cannot provide me the room avaiablility, i was introduce by a taxi driver go to this hotel because it say it was not expensive.

yes, it true, below 100 buck u can have a night stay.. just that not breakfast.

the service provide quite ok, but it seem not fashion like other 'hotel' standard. but it not so terrible..
the surrounding is ok. just that too many noise around. even it really have night life, but it noisy and the environment is dark around. luckly i saw polis petrol around. it will be good if you have a car to travel around. the problem is when u want to park, you need to park at a very dark area of parking load.

back to the room, it can consider clean but it old... i don't know, 'hotel' standard ma... i heard it got star also.. but i didn't felt comfort. when i lay on the bed, it even got other people hair and unclean bed.. don't know they wash it or reuse it.. same as towel.. smell uncomfort.

overal performance. is poor.

First, the bad stuff... This hotel has clearly seen better days. I was in three different rooms throughout my stay here. All three had very noisy air-conditioning. While I was at the reception counter the first day, I heard a lady complain about this too and she asked for another room. I thought perhaps it was just her room but I guess after staying in three different rooms with noisy AC, I believe this is a problem in all rooms here. There is only one fan speed as far as I know, and it seems to be top speed and the system makes so much noise you really have to train yourself to get use to it. There is also a couple of karaoke pubs just opposite and they can create quite a din. I switched off the AC one night and the noise from the pubs were too much even with the windows shut so I put the AC back on, drowning out any outside noise.

Now for the good points, which may be reason enough why anyone would stay on here even with the noise...

Friendly atmosphere. Reception staff helpful, friendly, stuff sent to room right away without much delay, friendly restaurant crew, even the security guy was friendly.

Free wifi throughout the premises, not just lobby. There is one computer for guest use in the lobby. Wifi speed and reliability wasn't too good while I was there though but good enough for checking emails and general web-surfing.

Decent selection of channels on TV, one or two English movie channels, one sports channel and some Chinese language channels. Don't recall if there was a dedicated news channel.

Clean room and bathroom. Note that only a small piece of soap and small bath towel provided.

Food in restaurant was okay too. Reasonable prices.

And best of all, the low room rates. RM50 for single room and RM65 for double.

So the pros are more than the cons. Good place to stay if you're on a budget, avoid if you're a light sleeper and just can't put up with noisy AC or noise from nearby pubs.

excellent location on the river side for all the city highlights. Excellent service, accommodation, food and free internet service and computer use. A good place to relax and reload your energy.

When I walked into the lobby I was a bit surprised. Then I saw the room and the pricetag and I nearly fainted. Excellent value in Sibu, really friendly staff, perfect clean room, very well located. What more can you ask for?

i love sibu very much, i frequent travel to sibu for business purpose. but after i stay at li hua hotel recently, it give me another impression of bad service, why, the worker service is acceptable, however the room service, the pillow, bedsheet and towel look yellowish and dirt around it,, after a few night sleep on it on the next day i felt itchy and uncomfortable. it really sick, i have complaint to the staff for purpose of clean and comfort but they say the cleaning was done by laundry and there was not way they can improve. therefore make me not willing to stay anymore, so as it partner medan hotel at bus terminal. what i hope is that they should provide a clean and comfort feeling because we pay sen for a service. my friend also share the same feeling recently after very recent stay as they still not improvement.

Room Tip: just view the room before u confirm

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Li Hua Hotel, and were impressed by what good value it was. We paid RM65 a night for a 'single' room (with a double bed), the bathroom was clean, the room was nice and roomy and very light, and the bed was very comfortable. All-in-all, a most pleasant experience. The choice of food in the restaurant was unimaginative and a bit over-priced, and the staff too attentive, but it was also clean and bright. Very fast internet was provided free-of-charge for guests. Definitely a good place to stay in Sibu and can be recommended.
