                      Individual guest reviews

                      • Family with children
                        7.8

                        Good decent hotel. It more than justifies its tariff. The colour, decor , lightings and set up were very good.

                        The menu didnot have any choice for the Vegetarians.The gym shoes(compulsory) were being charged seperately. I feel when a gym , pool and sauna can beprovided to the guests shoes too can be provided on returnable basis.

                      • Couple
                        6.2

                        The breakfast was large with lots of choices

                        The room was very old and tired. The carpet was stained.

                      • Family with children
                        7.8

                        Excellent, comfortable and convenience to shopping and eating spots.

                      • Single
                        7.8

                        The room was beautiful and the concierge staff were lovely. Housekeeping were also helpful and when asked for help with anything, they were at my room within a short time.

                        I did not appreciate the unwelcoming reception staff. They were neither friendly, nor welcoming. I think this let's the hotel down as this is the first impression you get when visiting the hotel.

                        Location

                        Hotel service can be improved. Front desk staff were not very helpful. Although check in time was 2pm, we were told we had to wait up to 3pm because the room was not ready and we had to make some noise to the hotel manager before they could provide another room before 2pm.

                      • Couple
                        5.0

                        May be service the been given the customer service.

                        The old look of room where even the closet was spoil and the table leg was shaking.We did not the expect the condition of the room to be this bad where by on the internet the images of the rooms looks so great and nice.

                      • Single
                        5.8

                        They upgraded my room to a suite.

                        They hurried me up to clean my room and I was not feeling very well.

                      • Family with children
                        6.2

                        The location. Near to shopping area although you still need to drive or get a taxi.

                        The parking lot at the basement is quite small. The breakfast buffet needs more choices, especially on local foods. The facilities are considerably nice, although the hotel is not a favourable hotel for muslims as most facilities do not accomodate for muslims needs. But, overall this is a nice hotel.

                        Nice room, free cabled internet (wifi in the lobby). Nice, but small swimmingpool. Breakfast ok, but not too many variations. Location about 1 km. from Komtar and about 20 minutes walk to the old part of town. Big safety box in the room. Very fast elevator :-)

                      • Family with children
                        8.8

                        The value for money and location this my second time i stay in the hotel.

                        The bathroom. there is no pistol water spray next of WC. The room service food last year was mush better this year i do not know what. the test is avarage.

                      • Family with children
                        7.8

                        Smooth check-in. Prompt service delivering extra bed; ( however forgot to give an extra towel). High speed lift, very impressive. Didn't stinge on table lamps, stand lamps and reading lights. Extra large king size bed I haven't come across in many hotels, and extra spacious room that fit an extra bed comfortably. Complimentary internet access which many hotels mistake for a profit centre. Brief but comprehensive range of TV channels to cater for wide range of guest. Courteous staff from front office to housekeeping and the girl at buffet breakfast makes very good omelette . All in all one could feel the effort taken to make guests feel comfortable.

                        Basement parking was a little limited for the size of the hotel but I can't complain as there was always a car leaving or one vacant lot left each time I entered. The sofa in the room needs to be changed as it is uncomfortable with the seat sloping forward instead of backwards.

                        1) Front desk staff during check-in on 26th May 2011 were not friendly and didn't even bother to tell us there is a free shuttle service to and fro Gurney Plaza until we found out ourselves on the last day of our stay on 31st May 2011. 2) Upon checking into the room, I found out that the bathroom door was spoilt (unable to lock) and I immediately informed the front desk. The staff on duty promised to send someone to check. Waited for about 30 minutes, no one turn up. Called front office again as I will be going out soon and was informed that technicians could get in the room themselves and check even if I was not around and advised me to lock up valuables. I got back to my room at 9:00 pm and checked the bathroom door and found out nothing has been done. So informed front office again and 5 minutes later, 2 technician came and checked. After 10 minutes, they informed that nothing could be done as many rooms also having the same problem with the bathroom door. So what can I do? I just have to bear with it and use the bathroom which is unable to lock and have to tell everyone every time someone is using the bathroom. What kind of service is this?
