Rachel E. Families with older children Canada, May 2, 2016
Smokey rooms and peeling wallpaper
If you want a nice big space with great views in the center of town, the 2 bedroom apartments are great. If you are bothered by stained and burned carpets, peeling wall paper, a strong smell of cigarette smoke or a little cockroach running through the kitchen, maybe this hotel isn't the one for you. The bedding seemed clean, and the beds comfortable, but the overall feel is very run-down.

Classic and strategic location

ambiance, location, view
It was a pleasant stay for me, my parents and my 2 sisters. The place located at center of the city and just next to Sarawak Museum and a shopping mall. Easy to find food where the hawker/restaurant you can find them easily. The ambiance of hotel was peaceful, I love when backed to the hotel about 7pm, you can hear the live piano played by someone who is very talented. Overall, I enjoy my stay there. The only improvement needed is the swimming pool. The cleanliness can be improved because I found the water in the pool was not really clean(found black dirt in the water).

Chin K. Families with young children Malaysia, December 25, 2015
Sincerely , the hotel room is very bad condition as the ceiling paint is peeling off, leaking, carpet very smelly and dirty, the window is frosted with dust, the pillow is smelly, the toilet with fungus, the bed sheet is thorn, the bed is uneven made me back pain, the kitchen is smelly dirty and the water boiler is yellowish inside how to cook a drinking water, the air con is warm although it show 0 0 degree, the buffet breakfast that I paid totally not worth for money as it is every morning the same menu. The pool is dirty and no cleaning maintenance . I am very stress because this is my business trip. I understand this hotel is quite old but should maintain it in a good way and not putting in the list is five star hotel.

Nurull A. Families with older children Malaysia, November 29, 2015
good stay but Management should refurbish the rm

Location & room spacious
The hotel was packed and the staff were busy until they couldn't handle our calls, few time the staff told us they were busy and couldn't attend us. Upon checked in the towels were not ready, we only had our towels at 11pm after few calls. The wifi was bad we can even log-in into the WIFI. The appartment is spacious but too bad it was not maintained properly i.e sofa, TV the bulky version, kitchen very smelly. The Hotel management should consider refurbish the room since the location is 5 star.
