Although the bedroom itself was fine & the location very central, the bathroom was terrible. It smelt like an Asian sewer, perhaps because the toilet pipe constantly dripped Tlhe door to the bathroom did not shut properly so you could smell it all the time. The toilet seat had dirty footprints on it, an unscrubbed bowl & a small deposit on the back of the seat! I suspect that the reception staff had been using it, as it was the closest room to there & I had arrived without a booking. The restaurant at the hotel has now closed permanently, however many highly rated harbourside restaurants are located nearby. My room was opposite the market, interesting to watch, but opened very early & noisily. Although the staff were friendly, due to the smell & lack of cleanliness of the bathroom this was the worst hotel I stayed in in a month long trip. Next time I'd pay more!

Stayed here for a night in September. Comfortable stay. The room and the bathroom looked and felt old but clean and nice. However it's a bit cramped, not so spacious. Good location. Cheap price and I think it's ok. Didn't have a big issue with this hotel.

Stayed here 2 nights. Used as transit for Sepilok. Good central location, easy to find your way around. When we stayed lift was broken and it was a difficult climb to the 4th floor. Windows only single pane, we were on side street and market sets up at 5.30am on Sunday morning - very, very noisy. Also noisy on other night with traffic. Reception tried to sell tours even before we had finished booking in! Would only suggest as a last resort.
