Got to the hotel, sharing a room with someone else (we won't be coming back to the hotel at the same time during our stay) but not given an extra key because "hotel is full". Wifi throughout the hotel is not working so we have to be standing in the lobby (no other place with wifi), although the staff did...

Quite OK place to stay if you don´t have any specific standards, and quite cheap. My room was not so clean upon arrival. At that time I had been travelling for a long time, and did not care too much, but one day I asked the housekeeper if he could do my room. He said yes, but when I returned...

This is a friendly hotel but we booked it as we thought it was in the centre of Georgetown rather than the outskirts. The hotel has a pool but although pool is clean the surrounding area is not very conducive to relaxing. The room was clean although bathroom rather shabby. Toilet however very good flush. I know this is amusing...

The location of the this hotel is excellent. Near every food stall that you want to try. The best Char Kuey Teow is just 10 mins walk to Siam Street. The room I stayed was pretty decent, clean and neat. Just couple of items in the room have been worn out. Forget about the internet connection....its as good as nothing....

We book for the 4 occupancy room and we call the Red Rock Hotel before we book to double confirm to make sure this room is a family room. In the end when we reach there from KL (4 hours by drive), they give us a studio room and suggest us to cancel booking and book again to a family...

Was staying this hotel last week with my wife and children for 2 nights. A family trip. When we're walking back to our room after dinner on the first night, I was shocked there is a china girl standing at the corridor, and asked me whether if I want sex service. I was wondering is this a hotel or a...

It is understandable and acceptable that the room rate is expensive during peak period. However, the money spent did not match with the quality of the room provided. The hotel was terribly maintained. The facilities provided were unacceptable, from the plastic kettle to the CRT television. Besides, no water dispenser was provided, Wifi connection was way below expectation and parking...

We stayed at the Red Rock Hotel for 2 nights during a recent trip to Malaysia. We would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone as it’s shabby, poorly maintained, and dirty. ROOM • Our room was large and comfortable, with poorly maintained and dated furnishings. • Our double bed was firm but comfortable. • The room was quiet and well...
