We're supposed to check in at 2 pm however we were told our room wasn't ready yet hence we've to wait for another hour before checking in which is a waste of time. We had a three bedroom apartment and overall it's pretty decent except the toilets aren't very well maintained. if not it would have been more pleasant.
location wise it's pretty good since it's in the town unless you're looking for beach side apartment then this is not for you.
Staffs are quite good with attending requests.

Located at Kuah which is the town centre and its convenient to get anything you need. Reasonably priced but seriously there are better one out there at the same price. I think the property is good but due to poor maintenance and neglect, it become such a lousy condition. Forget about the breakfast....it's horrendous but luckily it's located near town centre. I only recommend this hotel only as a last resort.

A good apartment for those who does not expect much of luxury. It's comfortable and clean. The hotel could done better with their breakfast spread though, but hey, with the price of MYR8.80 per person, what can we expect??

  • Liked — Comfortable and very efficient for request of hair dryer and iron
  • Disliked — thin towels, not so good matress and pillows
  • Tips/Secrets — ask a unit with seaview, it's excellent...mine was unit 1103

I couldn't give it just one star because it wasn't horrible, but it was close. The condo was pretty big, but that didn't make up for all the shortcomings of this place.

The bathroom had mold and mildew in many places, including the shower curtain (which really needed to be replaced). There was no hot water when I took a shower (there's a button outside the bathroom that you have to press to turn on the hot water, but no directions on how to use it. Furniture was old in the bedroom, but actually nice in the living room. Sheets on the bed looked like they were permanently stained, and washing wouldn't help. The bottom sheet was just a top flat sheet turned sideways, so that left about 12 inches of the mattress exposed at the bottom where your feet go. 2 split air conditioning units, but every time you leave the apartment and take the key out of the slot, the circuit breakers have to be reset on each A/C unit.

There were ants all over the kitchen, including inside the refrigerator, despite the fact that there was no food for them to eat. The breakfast buffet was the worst I've ever seen in all my travels. The food consisted of oily rice, oily noodles, cut up hot dogs and white bread with no toaster. I took the bread up to my apartment and used the toaster there. You should know that this part of town is pretty boring, with no beach... only shops to go to. I would not stay here again.

  • Liked — The furniture in the living room
  • Disliked — In bad condition overall, and breakfast inedible
  • Tips/Secrets — look elsewhere

Went to Kondo Istana for a meeting. The room I got was in an apartment suite. I would call it functional - sofa set, dining room furniture, very basic kitchen and the room had a built-in wardrobe, with dressing table and bed. Don't expect a luxurious experience. But it's located behind City Bayview Hotel and of course, right in front of City Bayview are the duty-free shops. Not complaining because I just wanted to have a room to rest in and access to the shops. I would recommend this hotel to families and those on a budget.

  • Liked — The internet connection in the function room and the proximity to shops
