I have stayed at Sunway Seberang Jaya a few times on business travel not because it is such a great place but for a lack of choice. It is unfortunate that this is the only barely decent hotel in this area.
The location is ideal for the business traveler as it is surrounded by a shopping mall and you get a fairly decent selection when it comes to food from nasi kandar to a steak house. The management should really think about renovating the place and spruce up the hotel a bit but I guess with the lack of competition, I don't see this happening anytime soon.
The room size is quite decent and the bathrooms do come with bath tubs but everything just looks so old and worn out from the carpet to the curtains to the furniture. Fortunately the rooms are fairly clean. Another plus point is the free wifi but unfortunately it is fairly slow. You also get dropped all the time and you need to login again every time your get reconnected. I ended up relying on my 3G connection instead.
Breakfast is just average but a big minus point is that the restaurant is far too small to cater to the number of guests so either be there very early or very late. Otherwise, you may have to wait quite awhile for a table.
