We were concerned when they gave us the 3rd floor, and my window is facing KSL. I can see the giant signboard and all the cars were there, ppl playing their honks every now and then. But hey, it is ok. You can hear it if you pay attention, but the tv was on... by 10 plus 11 o'clock the crowds were gone. Every now and then a car passes by louder than the others... and I couldn't sleep but I had my earpiece and watched Tower Heist. No problem at all.
The room had aircon but lacks a ceiling fan. We are used to the combination as we don't turn the aircon down to 16c or 24c.... but without the aircon, we need to tune it to 24c or otherwise it is very hot even at night. And then suddenly you need to tune it back up a little because it got too cold after the wee hours. That part is annoying. The control is wall-mounted so you have to get out from your comfy bed and get some lights on to see what you are pressing.
The food is so so downstairs. Wanted to try their room service but didn't. Price is reasonable. We didn't try room service because outside there are plenty of choices. Unfortunately, we find JB food not to out liking, except Restaurant Lavender @ Jln Serampang.
The TV is a bit small 32" but with a distance from the bed. So you can say the room is slightly bigger than others. Just slightly. Toilet is ok, water pressure is great. Couldn't hear my neighbours unless there were none.
The lift is a big small and sometimes ppl want to squeeze in instead of wait. The front desk staff seemed tired, no friendly smile. It's like hello, reservation please? And that's all. The other smaller hotel in Batu Pahat had better courtesy.
Car is confusing. I went to the back at first which was narrow and one way, so I was on the wrong way. But if you got to the right place, it is alright. The guards are friendly, probably because they aren't locals.
You can walk which ever direction outside the hotel, and there is food every where. But not all are nice. In fact, worst in my opinion. We had the wantan mee, bakuteh, fry kueh teow... complete waste of money. Should hv KFC or McD instead.
Tesco is in KSL. Plenty of shops... all open. Lots of ppl. I guess everyone pays for the location bcos you can dine, go back for a quick shower, go out again... or go back if you forgotten something, or feeling under the wind, etc...
Ah, cleanliness...not clean at all underneath the bed. The aircon would blow some dust out if you had it on the wrong direction. So that is minus points.
