      Affordable hotel at the Island”

      Last minute booking. We managed to get this hotel at a very reasonable rate. 2 large beds which can accommodate 4 adults and 1 kid. We read through the previous review, some said its creepy, some said its haunted etc. After experiencing it ourself, theres no ghosts, no horrifying scenes, nothing. Only that.. the building is old. Its where an old building mall been transform into a hotel. Facilities wise is ok and ok, not much to expect, but overall its comfortable where i can say. Remember.. no ghosts.. no creepy things at all..

      I like this hostel a lot, for the discount price they're offering through agoda that means a lot, this hostel is in the city, so very easy for you to find food, close to mall and glenagles hospital, room is clean, bathroom is quite small but ok, ac is ok, it is build from old house, so you will feel the uniqueness of it, i might stay again if i have to go to hospital again

      Everything was perfect and ok except the bathroom. The bathroom was clean but not dry when we checked-in at around 3.00pm. When we request the housekeeper to dry the bathroom, we were told to dry it ourselves. We were told that it is the hotel policy that the bathroom is only wash clean but not dry clean by the housekeeper.

      The hotel is in a very good location as it is right in town. Although it is quite an old hotel, the rooms were clean and comfortable. However, during the night, we were a little unnerved over the condition of the hotel as we had to go through very eerily quiet hallways to get to our room. Would not recommend staying here alone though. Overall it was a good stay.

So next day we change to a six pax room adding rm 20 for it. Then is better. Lift was old, u have to pass tru a restaurant kitchen to reach the lift, smell funny. Entrance of the hotel is wierd. Local staff was friendly, the foreign labor staff not so. Overall room was clean , water pressure strong, internet sucks. Basement parking very dark, dare not park there.

      Very Rundown Accommodation and unfriendly staff”

      This is definitely not a hotel for sure! We went in a group of 6 of girls, once we have reached we were greet by friendly staff (morning shift). We were happy, after drop our luggage we went out for tour without checking out the room condition. The nightmare starts as soon as we return to the "hotel" at night (~10pm). There were few gangs of foreign workers and they keep on teasing us and staring at us in front of the "hotel", one Burmahtel staff saw it, but he pretended he didn't which I felt deeply insecure and dangerous if you are travelling without guy. After rushing in to "hotel" with top of speed, we complained to one of the staff, but his reply "is okay one" to end the conversation. Once step in to the lift, the lift was so rundown with some rotten smell. This added our regret to choose this "hotel". If you want to know the room condition, it is very spacious to be fair but it was full of dust and the room seems never been housekept for months. The pillow was grey in color (literally) covered by dust and we straight away ask for replacement for a clean pillow. the same uncle replied, no house keeping staff at this hour, so you have to wait until tomorrow. All of us felt so meh and speechless. He also mentioned no room changed. With the tiring body, we really couldn't look for another room at other hotel. So we slept in this grey pillowed room with regret hearts. No more second time, a lesson learnt! If Agoda has cleanliness with negative number, we will definitely choose it. This is the worst ever "hotel" we have experienced. :-(

      near pulau tikus, tidy, got shower

      I booked a room for 5 people. Got a room with 2 beds. The room provided with 2 AC and a bathroom. The bathroom got no lock. The hotel rooms was quite like a dorm or maybe a hospital. The elevator is poor, looks old and dirty. Saw some old patients with masker going around the alley of the room, maybe for the location near hospital. For the food it is near pulau tikus, good for morning activities like looking for food or market. But at night it is quite quiet.

      Clean, cheap

      The room is clean although the walkway from hotel entrance to the rooms is less satisfactory. The hotel is located at shop lots, there are few parking space available in from of the shop lots. Basically, it's just a room for you to sleep. There is a flat screen TV in the room with astro channels. It's a good choice if you are looking for a cheap and clean room.
