Much better than expected

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 May 2024
As we booked last min hotels in Malaysia - hardly 15 days before the traveling dates and didn't do any research and just booked which was available. We wanted to stay up in resort world area as have stayed in genting highlands before but all were sold out as we didn't realize it was Eid weekend in Malaysia.
We had booked 2 bedroom apartment through the system and the cost for reasonable with breakfast...but when started reading review, started to have doubt about cleanliness, elevator etc. Tried looking for other properties but availability was big challenge and they were showing apartments only...
So decided - lets go ahead and don't expect anything and think of the worst for these 2 nights. So prepare the kids and hubby by informing that staying in 3 star hotel not to expect anything, carry own toiletries, etc.
We arrived around 1500hrs - check in was smooth and took 10 min, had to pay the revenue fee of 13rm per night and the reception showed us the building behind the parking and they had 8 elevators.
Which was apartment side which connects from parking space. Our room was on 36th floor. Premier 2 bedroom apartment with the view of resort world and construction behind the building.. the view was ok. Weather was good and windy.
Living room was with sofa and fan and small dining table for 4 with pantry - full size fridge/ gas/ washing machine and coffee/tea making with 2 mugs. Beside that nothing, no glass, no spoons ( which we prepared before hand - throw away ones so it was not a problem for us). Come prepared.... we didn't use anything expect the kettle for hot water to make coffee. We brought our own ice / water / juice from near by super market so it was easy & convenient.
2 small rooms with 2 queen size bed - 1 room with attached bathroom and 1 room the bathroom is outside. Not much space to put your towel / clothes ( only 1 rod ) to put your clothes inside the bathroom.
Have basic toiletries which we never used as was carrying own. Only head shower in the bathroom, for gals u need to make sure to have plastic cap or else u will end up making your hair wet.
Hot water pressure was good. Wifi signal was ok - on/off sometimes but overall it was at good speed.
Very simple and in terms of cleanliness would give them 60/100 as could see the stain, dust etc on the bathroom floor. Bed was neatly made. Air con worked well in both the rooms. If you need air con in the living room , make sure to open your bedroom doors.
Bed & pillow were ok.. please make sure to carry multiplug which we forgot but got it from the market near the hotel which is approx 10 min walk.
Breakfast was basic more on Malaysian dishes.. for me it was so soo just had bread and egg with juice. Don't expect much. Cleanliness was not up to the mark. I did see some cockroaches near the cooking area (tried to ignore and not to eat or take anything from that side)
Buffet breakfast is served on 5th floor of hotel side so you can take shortcut from Apartment parking lot to hotel parking lot side and use fire escape stairs to go in the hotel restaurant side.
Pool and gym on 41st floor, u need to register beforehand. Carry your own towels etc as nothing is provided on that floor.
There are many local eateries near the hotel which are open all the time and there are many different cuisines to choose from. Traveling in / out - recommend only calling grab and give enough time as u waste 15-30 min finding grab. local taxi is double/triple the price of grab but at peak hrs, no choice, or else ending up waiting for 1hr.
Overall the hotel and location were ok.. I will grade them as good 3 star instead of 4 star property. I have not seen the hotel rooms so can't comment on that, but Apartment side were ok. You could get cheaper rates if book as windmill apartment but the entrance will be different side of the hotel and the services will be different as the hotel which are looking after some floors are providing hotel assistance / service to those apartments.
Premier outlet mall is approx 10 min away. Hotel charge 10rm pp per way at fix time. If you are more than 2 then just take a grab as it will come to same price.
I don't think i will repeat this hotel...but over all it was ok!! if you come prepare.

Room Tip: If 2 people take the rooms on the hotel side - Deluxe.
