When it takes 20mins to get from ground floor to the 20th floor and vice versa, I say that's enough to deter me from coming back again. If not for work, this hotel will not be in my list of choice at all.
Rooms are large, and clean. Probably the only good think I will say about this hotel review now. But the rooms had very poor lighting and seriously, who puts half screen at the tub. An invalid will never be able to shower here unless they use the pipe beside the toilet. Even for someone who's able to use both feet, the fact that we'd have to climb awkwardly into the tub to shower, and then risk falling down as we have to again climg akwardly out of the already wet tub, it's basically a bathroom that welcomes accidents.
Aircond is another issue. You have to be someone who either loves it cold or warm. No middle grounds to it. It's obviously an old hotel that needs major refurbishing.
But coming back to the elevator. It took a good 2 mins to get from floor 19 to floor 20!!!! And was a very very slow agonising journey from ground floor. It screeches. It jerked. It was scary!
And then you have the biggest joke of a breakfast buffet. They served white rice and dishes on both days I was there! Seriously???? They had an egg counter that refused to make scrambled eggs. They had bad coffee. Oh, and they had steamed tapioca!!! Nasi Lemak was horror...rice porridge was bland. And to place cut blocks of butter into a bowl...there is simply no hygiene in that poor excuse of a coffeehouse.
I am so sorry, but I would NOT recommend anyone to stay here, nor will I ever come back.
