Hydro hotel not a good hotel to pick from. So, its not a lose. Their room are old and some room have toilet problem. Stayed there last year. Nothing change.

Breakfast and service is good though and nice location too. There's plenty of hotel to choose still...

Is the Hydro what used to be known as the Sheraton?

I've always looked at it and thought "Nice hotel, but it's in the middle of nowhere". I mean, you're not within walking distance to market or food. Does that make it difficult to holiday there, or are the prices in-house good?

Sheraton Hotel is replaced to Dorsett Hotel which is situated at Burmah Road and it's near New World Park.

Whereas, Hydro hotel situate near/before Batu Ferringhi. It's not within walking distance to market or food but it's actually a nice looking hotel. But lack of maintenance. Good that they are going to refurbish the room.

Spacious room there but just a bit rundown.
