    A Run-down Hotel”

    A run-down hotel at the heart of Sibu old town. It looks dull and old. All the points go to the location itself. You could get other better hotels on the same street at almost same rate if not cheaper.

    The room is not made to win an interior design contest, it is more practical than beautiful, but clean, spacious and well-equipped. The owner was totally nice and helpful. Downstairs is a caf´e where you can have (non-western) breakfast.

    No hot water, I repeat, no hot water.”

    First of all, the hotel receptionist, also the owner himself most of the time, an middle age man , is very friendly and easy to talk to. His wife works a few shifts there too, a nice old lady with great smiles and helpful manners. I was warmed to them immediately. The room is clean, and the location is extremely strategic almost in the most happening part of the Sibu town, near Tua Pek Kong Temple and the Central Market near the river, which is nice. The thing is, there was no hot water for the shower. The owner told me the electrical wiring gone bad or something, and the whole hotel was left without hot water(only around 10 rooms, small hotel). My first reaction was, you kidding me? No warm water? So it was either cold water or no shower at all. The second thing is there are a lot of pubs nearby the blasted loud music throughout the night nearby. First night I heard the music and the shouting and laughing till 3:30 am the next morning. FML. For RM 50 something per night this is bad.

    The hotel is great for the price. However, they charged us an extra tax of 10RM per night once we got to the hotel which never happened to us anywhere else in Malaysia during our trip.

    Cheap accomodation & easy access to the city!”

    I was looking for accommodation place that won't break the bank, but yet will allowed me to explore the city by feet. And this was a good deal! Don't expect anything fancy from the hotel, its a comfortable room to sleep and wash. Decent wifi speed but there's a good work table & chair in the room if u plan to work during your stay. A bit noisy at night because there are clubs around. But if you are a heavy sleeper, it shouldn't be a problem. The owner and staff are nice too!

    Great staff, unfortunately rubbish sleep”

    It's a shame to write a bad review as they guy was awesome. Unfortunately the traffic, a club/karaoke near by, and loud bikes/people meant we hardly slept. They say it's currently being refurbished but we didn't see any signs off this, and I hope our room was on the to do list. Bed was uncomfortable and squeaky everyone some rolled over.The headboard was made of a carpet with more stains then a traditional pub carpet - wasn't nice. The walls need painting and whole thing needed freshening up. They also must have let people smoke as the room stunk of stale cigarettes. If your a heavy sleeper, then the price makes it a bargain, but for me, i would look to stay else where to ensure I slept for more then 3 hours

    I like this place and owners nice person. I give 10 point score but i was a little bit disappointed. Very hard to sleep that night because a very unpolite and rough family disturbed for 24 hours my rest. Their child cried all the time, very unrespectful persons. The owner didnt tell them nothing. Not good.

    Ventaja, esta enfrente del mercado nocturno y funciona el aire acondicionado. Es sucio, no lo más sucio que he visto pero sucio. No hablán inglés, el wifi no funciona y de madrugada cuando íbamos a coger el ferry, el tipo nos había encerrado con cadena y candado, casi lo perdemos pero descubrimos un cartel con un número de teléfono en el mostrador, escrito en Malayo, llamamos y vinieron a abrirnos.
