This place is right on the waterfront on the opposite corner to A&J (non-budget) Hotel. We were given room 208 which is at the front with a double bed and a shower room with hot water. There's CCTV in all the corridors so reception knows what's going on immediately. There's a large sitting area at reception and a fridge, tea & coffee facilities and a balcony to sit out on and watch the boats coming and going (although the dried fish smell from downstairs takes a bit of getting used to). Peter (Pan) the manager was a friendly bloke offering to go out to one of the local restaurants for some cheap beer (MYR4 per can). As others have said, the wi-fi didn't work but Peter suggested going over to the non-budget A&Js and using theirs. Unfortunately the CCTV failed to spot the massive cockroach which was making a bee-line across the corridor to our room nor the dog that seems to regularly used the stairs as a toilet. A taxi to the airport is MYR30.
