Charge for Wifi, Chemical smell from Pillows
Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
First things first for business travelers: they charge money for wifi. About RM5 per hour, and 32 per day. It's cheaper to pay for your own internet plan through your wireless carrier. I paid Maxis/Hotlink RM3 for 1 Gigabyte for 24 hours of usage to make my stay here bearable. I've stayed in hundreds of hotels and this is the first hotel that charges extra for wifi. If you intend on watching videos from the internet, skip this hotel.
The room was plenty large, but that's the only advantage of this hotel. The primary function of a hotel, which is to provide a place for guests to sleep is seriously hindered by the chemical smell coming from the pillows. Each room has 4 pillows. All 4 pillows had this chemical smell coming from it that smelled like rubber. It's quite unpleasant and makes it difficult to sleep. I think it's what they used to wash the pillows with, but it smells like formaldehyde. Whatever it is, it can't be healthy and is a health hazard. I called about the smell at 5am and they gave me another room. In the new room, only two pillows had the chemical smell, so I put them in the closet and slept with the two pillows that did not have the smell.
They don't provide you with a real blanket, but a quilt sandwiched in between two sheets. It gets annoying if the sheets become undone and your skin gets exposed to the scratchy quilt.
