Hotel Malaysia is a time-capsule - of a 3-star hotel somehow locked in a timewarp from the 60s-70s! For nostalgic people like me, its a fantastic experience! The faucets in the toilet, the tiny one-inch mosaic tiles on the floor, the aluminium-frame doors, the musty burnt-orange curtains, the roughed textured painted concrete wall finishings, the round globe-lamps in the coffee house, the ugly-as-hell concrete fake rock mountain and fountain in the lobby, the lighting fixtures, wardrobe and dressing table in the rooms, all came straight out of 1965! Its perfect! If you want to make a period movie or TV show, just come here! Everything may be retro and vintage and everything works - the beds clean, the lifts go, every light turns on, every powerplug works. Just don't ask for anything (like broadband internet or cable TV) that is invented after 1979 ....... HAHAHAHAHAHA it was a fantastic time-travel BLAST and I'd make sure I stay there again and again and again ....... complete the 70s experience by visiting the KOMTAR shopping complex, a shopping mall stuck in the same era. Just a postscript - a storm broke out during my stay there and the wall of my room leaked SO BADLY a miniature waterfall (like the one in Kota Tinggi) was created! However, since it did not flow ONTO my bed it just added to the inimitable charm of the hotel. I mean, which OTHER hotel has an en-suite water-fall? Not even the 7-Star Dubai Burj al Arab hotel's Presidential VIP Suite has a waterfall ....... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
