“Cheap, new hotel”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The staff was not proficient and still nice with some smile.
The room was simple with a big window, which is good but it would be nicer if the view was not on the busy street.

I do not like their way of procedure that they make us pay at c/i and in addition, ask for a deposit in cash. At c/o, there is only one staff, so he goes to check the room condition by keeping us waiting if we broke or stole some items from the room, then he gives us back the deposit. I wonder why he simply calls some of houskeepers to check or takes some guarantee on credit card and cancel it at c/o as most of hotels do?

Anyway, you can get a better place to stay in Butterworth by paying slightly more.

* We did our booking through bookings.com the same day we were reaching Butterworth. When we reached there at 11:00 pm we got to know that they dont have our booking, however eventually they dug out the information and told us that they received the booking very late.
* We had no choice but to accommodate ourselves in the one double and one single room they offered us at about close to midnight. Interestingly the prices offered by bookings.com were more than the hotel regular prices.
* Staff was nice and smiling and they gave us extra mattress to compensate, however first they confirmed the new rates with us and then they received a call from their manager and they tried to change the rates according to bookings.com.
* Our room was not cleaned/prepared the two days we stayed there despite requesting that.
* Overall its a cheap hotel with very small and windowless rooms (at least that is what we had in our stay)
