3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Decent price hotel conveniently located within shopping centres and eating outlets. As the hotel is not new, so don't expect a 4-star facility. Happy that there is wifi although it can be slow. Twin sharing costs RM72 which is reasonable. There is lift which makes it easier for us with heavy luggage.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 3rd flr and I think it's ok although we can hear noises from outside.

Night market just in front of the hotel. WIFI is very good and reliable. The hotel should look into safety by changing cracked and dirty toilet bowl. Price start from RM45. They also have budget hotel few doors to this hotel name Iskandar Hotel

I've been staying this hotel on and off. Previously I never have any difficulty. However just today, I am disappointed with the hotel service. I booked online through asiarooms.com for staying one night at twin room (27 March 2013). As usual, I gave my debit card number to secure my booking. The problem is that we come a little bit late from scedule which we suppose to come at 11pm but we came at 12am instead cause our ferry was delayed. We came there only to find out that our room was sold to other guest. The front office personnel, Andy is rude and scold me for not coming on time and angry at me, saying that it's my fault. The thing that makes me disappointed the most is that they suppose to have courtesy to call me back which to confirm whether I was gonna come or not. Besides, I already gave my debit card details, why they are afraid they are not gonna sell the room whenever they can deduct from my debit card in case of no show? I pissed off and went to Full Hua instead, better than this cocroaches nest hotel. I AM NOT GOING TO COME TO THIS HOTEL EVER AGAIN!!!! CHEAP HOTEL WITH CHEAP COURTESY...DON'T COME TO THIS HOTEL FOR GOD SAKE!!!

Room Tip: " Beware of coackroaches and mosquito...And frequent blackout"

When you see a hotel room that is costing only rm80, The hotel must be in a dark and dirty location with just a broken bed. But Hotel Sri Iskandar is not a bad choice for me and my family. Although the room is a bit old and the bathing facilities were not too enjoyable, but the room is still a perfect choice for me at this cheap price. They still have a 7-eleven nearby. Don't expect to much and you'll get more than what you've paid for.

Room Tip: Choose rooms which can see the view of the night market. It's so enjoyable with a cup of latte.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for a night.It was cheap.We got a standard room for RM72.However,the room was a bit timeworn.I assumed that it was an old hotel based on the room and lift.Nothing much were provided.Only towel & soap.No drinking water.There were mineral bottles at the counter.But they were refilled.So my advice is BYO drinks.Don't worry.There are convenience stores near the hotel that operate 24hours.If you want to save money and just need a place to sleep and you are not bothered much with comfort,this hotel might be the one for you.

Frankly, my friends and I barely stayed at the hotel given our schedule. Our plane arrived at 7PM, our tour itinerary starts at 7:30 AM the next day with overnight at Kinabalu Park, so really we just needed a pitstop for that night. Since we needed only a pitstop, we opted to find a place that was cheap. And Sri Iskandar is certainly that ... very cheap. And like my title says, you get what you pay for. The beds were spacious enough; we were not cramped at all. But the room itself was a bit timeworn, and so was the bathroom, and so was the hallway, and so was the lobby. You get the idea. On the plus side, the staff was very accommodating, both while we were booking online (they allowed changes we made at the last minute at no extra cost) and when we got there. Location-wise, all I can really say is that there was a night market in the area fronting the hotel, a 711 store next door, a KFC nearby and a seafood restaurant/market. Since we didn't stay there long, we weren't really able to explore.
