We had problems locating this hotel, as we did not know it was actually the previous MS Garden Hotel. The sign board near the road approaching is still using MS Garden, which we had stayed many times over since 20 years ago or more. The lobby underwent a much renovated to match current days design. it is certainly much better...

Very good customer service. Nice rooms. Nice breakfast. Very centralized. The public toilets downstairs weren't clean well and full of water. The hotel should take responsibility to put up a sign to say that you can't turn left on the crossroads going out to the main road. As it's a one way to the left. Accidents just waiting to happen!

Very run down place. Rooms are huge but dirty. We actually had to walk around in slippers as the carpets felt so icky. Shower was trickling. Toilet was leaky. Breakfast was awful. The only saving grace was the staff are warm and friendly.

Overall a not so good stay, stayed there for one night. It was still acceptable as we got it for a few hundred dollars... but there were leftover peanut shells and half-eaten peanuts, the shower compartment had a piece of tape in it and while I was bathing, it got stuck to my toe. It was a very horrible experience...

Stayed two nights as part of 'company retreat' in Kuantan...wonder why would a retreat be booked in such settings where i believe Kuantan being near the beach would have better & suitable beach resort for retreat?? Anyway, those are beyond me, and like my title, if you are here for business, i guess this is a no-brainer. It is centrally...

It's been a while since my last visit to this part of the world. This hotel is situated next to Berjaya Shopping Mall, right in the middle of Kuantan, a busy capital of Pahang. The room is spacious (yes, it surprises me), clean & family friendly. Bathroom is nice and cozy. Swimming pool is ok, with a sufficient size of...

I was so angry at how the peeps at MS Garden Kuantan handled my complaints so I decided to give it a rest before I actually write anything down. 1. I was checked into Room 403 The room was twin bedding. They told me bedding preferences are first come first serve. So they had no choice but to put me...
