I don't like to give negative reviews but this place deserves it. I picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced for being so close to the beach (only a few minutes away). The outside of the building looks pretty rough so I had hoped that at least the inside was well kept. I was wrong. I was tired so against better judgement i decided to book a room. I walked upstairs to my room and discovered the door to the neighboring room was open and there were 6 guys all sitting on the bed. Strange.
My room felt old and dirty but the sheets seemed clean enough. After spending the day on the beach and the evening in the town i returned to my room for the night. I slept well, that is until the rat digging through my garbage woke me up. By the time i turned the light on it had already vanished. I looked around the room to determine where it entered but couldn't pin point it for sure. There were numerous possibilities. I went to sleep again only to be awoken by my friend the rat going through the garbage again. This went on throughout the night so needless to say i did not sleep well.
I paid for two nights so i had to endure one more night. I cleaned the room of all visible garbage so I slept much better the second night. I guess the rat found another room to invade. I was elated to check out of this hotel. I like Batu Ferringghi so if i ever return i will certainly not be staying here! Be warned!
