Had a short weekend stay at the Palace of the Golden Horses (POTGH), Seri Kembangan.
The hotel has really nice Moroccan, Middle Eastern and Malaysia feel, however the inside is occupied with the horses. Many of them around, seriously everywhere, except the swimming pool, jetty, gymnasium, perhaps.
Check in counter seems to be empty most of the time. But I believe the front desk has the CCTV and the personnel will attend whenever there is someone approaching the counter.
We stayed on level 1 or rather the ground floor of the hotel, guess it is on the side of the swimming pool, garden view.
The room is spacious but not really clean. We saw leftover water bottles, chicken bones, peanuts in the room.
The balcony is large but empty.
Unlike most of the 4 stars, 5 stars hotels, this 6 stars hotel is lacking on signage as well as places for anyone to walk about. It one loves to walk and explore the beautiful view of the surrounding, good luck.
On the second might staying at POTGH, the room roof began to leak, with clear water then turned into dark chocolate liquid. Ok, you probably would have guessed what that may have been. Yep, we suspected sewerage too.
The hotel offered us a room change, however, it was already approaching 10pm and we were really tired, so we stayed on.
The leaking sort of stop in the morning. Maybe someone above us stopped.
Without any mode of transport (e.g. car, or car rental), this hotel is far from many things. There is a shopping mall (MINES) next to it, but not walking distant. If you love horses, there is turf club next door, again not walking distant.
The amenities provided in the room are all basic items one would required when on holiday or business. However, the horse shaped shampoo bottles are really hard to squeeze. The rest of the items, really giving one ever needed.
For the room lighting, if one needs serious working light, then there is none. The room is generally quite dark.
Well finally, the choice is yours.
