Seriously run down! Everything was broken. From cupboards to toilet doors to side lamp. It was broken and not working. Toilet was really dusty and unhygienic. Will never stay again unless they revamped and improved all the conditions.

One of the best hotels in JB pre covid times.Post covid,the hotel is in total disarray,especially the room Im staying in.No TV controller,torn towels,difficulty to close toilet door,no floor mat provided,very limited tissue,in room phone not working,among others. 2 years of covid they should at least maintain the standards,instead its becoming from bad to worst! The manager promised to rectify the problem 30 mins upon our arrival.After waiting for 1 hour,I have to call them up instead!The reason given was that he ended shift at 3pm but he stayed a bit to settle the issue.Become my problem that he had to stay a bit longer???Total disappointment!Buck up Thistle!Shame on you!
