    No body foam and no towel available. The bed sheet has blood. Also, the window is not sealed properly, so I can hear the traffic and try car honk very clearly, through the night. Room very smelly

    Basically nothing to like about.

    It’s one of the worst, no it IS the worst hotel I have ever stayed in JB. Everything listed on the page is a hoax. Let’s start with... No there is NO WIFI in the rooms, only available at the lobby. The lobby itself is warm and stuffy. The red chairs at the lobby are not red any more, close to brown. The rooms are not equipped with basic needs. The aircon at 16 degrees still felt like 25 degrees. The TV is old fashioned big assed TV with 0 programmes and there is no remote. No bath soap, shampoo or conditioner. They have bar soap tho. 2, and one is already opened. We had to go down to BUY them. Worst of it was There were no towels and when we asked the recep, he was like “oh you need towels you just call me when you come back, we will send it up to you.” I came with 5 persons so when I called to request for 5 towels, the security came and handed only 2. I was like “erm I asked for 5?” He was like “I don’t have 5 only have 2 I can try to find 1 more only.” How are we supposed to bathe when there are no more towels!? The security still can tell us off but saying he thought all is asleep and we asked them too late!? Like WTH what is too late? Aren’t you suppose to accommodate to the amount of people that supposedly can occupy the entire hotel? Its really a disappointment. I will NEVER stay here again. Not worth a single cent.
