I booked this hotel for our group for our recent visit to Borneo. The hotel is simple, in a good location and was a good price that fitted our budget. Sure the hotel is not a 5 star hotel but the price is not either. The rooms are simple, with a reasonably comfy bed and en suite shower room. The...

Let's start off with what photos cannot show: the odour. A combination of cigarette smoke, death and some other unworldly odour. Let's continue with what pics DO show. 1. Yellow stains on the bed sheets. Is it pee? You be the judge. 2. A dripping leak from the ceiling in the bathroom. 3. Curtains torn to shreds. 4. A stained...

Good points: 1. The hotel is just in the front of the night bus drop-off. This is quite convenient when you arrive early in the morning. The receptionist let us come in at 4 am. 2. The hotel is located in the main Street, easy to find place to eat and also book for trekking. 3. The staff are helpful...

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Location was good. It takes few minutes walk to Gaya sunday market & sea side night market. Room is small but clean. But there was no fridge, I should have checked that in advance. I needed that. Anyway staff was kind and everything was OK.

there was no floor mat, no toilet paper in the toilet and the body shampoo was left with just half bottle meaning that the room housekeeping was not properly done. The room was not really clean, kinda dusty and the air quality in the room was poor. The breakfast was just plain and with limited choices. Was shocked to found...

The moment we told out cabbie that we'd be bunking at Winner Hotel, he was awfully amused to hear as he told us that the hotel is located in the district where you can get women off the street for naughty fun :-) Anyways, hotel was ok. Rooms are a bit small - reminded me of Tokyo but having to...

Bad overall. Not clean at all. Problems with toilet, even after 3 times noticing at the reception, no solution. Bad wifi. The breakfast is very very basic but choose to eat breakfast elsewhere. Sad experience.
