While in transit in KL we found out our flight would be delayed, so Out of courtesy I phoned the hotel to advise them of our even later arrival.... More

This hotel is flawed in many ways from start to end: 1. Check-in taking 25 minutes (large number of people waiting to be checked-in, 3 staff serving, guests pushing in). 2. Two lifts out of 3 working, taking a very long time to access lifts (1 in "maintenance" but apparently 1 lift has been in maintenance for months). Sometimes we... More
