Stayed here for one night. Hotel has rather distant location from both airport (taxi cost around 50-60 ringits) and city centre, so, location is definitely not this hotel's advantage. As for interiors - have never met Novotel property that shabby - furniture looks dated, basic amenities ( including slippers) are absent from room by default. Mall, which surrounds the hotel, is rather shabby, as well - still, it's ok for buying some necessities/food.
As for in-hotel dining options - we had had kinda disasterous experience - majority of dishes in Malay restaurant were absent ( their excuse was, that they've ran out of ingridients), had to end a day with french fries + sandwich with local beer (which, have to admit, was rather good).
With regards to room price - yes, it's low ( ~75 USD in case of booking just one day in advance), however, next time I would prefer to add some money and book less weary hotel with more central location.
