Really enjoyed my short stay here and will not hesitate to come back. At the time of visit the hotel was undergoing some refurbishment such as new lighting fixtures, door locks etc.Room rate is reasonable and facilities are satisfactory. Good breakfast with a few new menu changed daily. Another plus offered during the stay was the 'Buy 2 free 1'... More

Just finished my second stay here. Had wrote a negative review after my first stay one year ago. However, I had no choice but checking in this hotel again due to lack of alternatives in Balai. After one year, there were still flies and karaoke noises in the hotel; staff still spoke very poor English; breakfast was still unsatisfying; bad... More

Wasn't too sure of which hotel to stay, so decided to give Hotel Maximillian a shot. It's about 10mins walking distance from the hotel, and as the only tall 7-storey building on the street, it's pretty distinctive and serves as a landmark for getting around. Spent one night in the Deluxe Room, and it's large, spacious and clean. All plus... More

Had a suite for one night. Fairly pricey (S$89) considering the overall vibe of the hotel was like a chalet. However, the room was big, easily accommodating a whole sitting area. My main requirement was that the room would be clean, and that, it certainly was, particularly the toilet and the bed. Amenities were basic, but good to have at... More

Complete with TV and toiletries, fridge and safe. Score very well for cleanliness. Breakfast was so so, but cheap ktv with good systems, excellent (not... More

Stayed on a business trip and wish I hadn't, but as there was no alternative, we were stuck there! The rooms were small and dingy, the bathroom dirty and smelly. Room Service was something they had possibly had described to them but never actually seen in action. As pointed out by someone else, the corridors and public access areas seemed... More

Went there with my husband for some business in April 2014. Took a ferry from Kukup. Return fare was about RM100 per head. Was originally planned to take the ferry from Puteri Harbour, but rumours on a few cases like ferry was cancelled last minute and money was not returned, etc. made us travel to Kukup (30min-1hr driving) and depart...
