Hotel From Hell

*Note: This is a journal of our experience and NOT a hotel review. Therefore the name of the hotel will not be mentioned here. If you would like to know the name of the hotel, do leave your email in the comments box or if you have mummy's email/Facebook, do drop her a message :)

Recently, mummy bought a hotel package from a "discount company". At only RM135, the package came with a 2D1N stay in a hill resort, a 4-course dinner for 2 and a buffet breakfast for 2. After paying and securing the booking, daddy and mummy decided to read some online reviews about the hotel. Bad mistake. They should have done this before buying the package, not after. Lesson learnt. Some hotel reviews rated the hotel 6/10 but some individual reviewers gave the hotel very, very terrible remarks.

One of mummy's friends (who have stayed there before) even told her to bring our own bedsheet and comforter! Mummy knew then, that we were in deep trouble. Daddy and mummy prepared themselves for the worst. However, things turned out to be worse than the worst that they had expected! Yes, it was THAT bad. Although they have stayed in many budget hotels before, none of them came close to this *HORROR*. The following photos will do the talking...

We were given a 1-bedroom studio apartment. The apartment building looks ok from the outside, but inside, it is far from being ok!

The wall of the carpark... mummy thinks this looks more like a scene from a horror movie. Yucks-o-meter 1/10

The whole building is very old, rundown and ill-maintained and every single wall in the building has hideous stains such as this. Yucks-o-meter 2/10

Everywhere you look, you will either see moss or brown stains!

The one and only lift. It is... *holds breath*... awfully and nauseating-ly stinky! Yucks-o-meter 3/10

The corridor leading to our unit... pathetic! Yucks-o-meter 4/10

Eye-sore and horrid! Yucks-o-meter 5/10

Totally mouldy and moss-y! Yucks-o-meter 6/10

Our room... overall damp and dusty. Don't believe?

Here's the evidence... mummy ran a piece of tissue paper across the headboard of the bed and this was what she got. Yucks-o-meter 7/10

The living room... the cushions on the sofa look worn out and dirty *geli*. I was forbidden from sitting on it after my bath :p Yucks-o-meter 8/10

The tv... this was the channel (it's TV2, there's no cable tv, sorry) with the best reception and it was in black and white, extremely grainy and the only sound we could hear was zzrzzrzzrzzrzzrzzrzzrzzrzzrzz. We turned off the volume and watched blur, silent tv for 10 minutes. After that, we gave up and turned it off for good hahaha! (If not for Super Trio, we wouldn't have bothered watching it at all) 

The balcony *no eye see*

The bathroom looks at least 3 decades old and has a hole on the door... sad!

The 4-course dinner turned out to be an economical fare of white rice with a selection of 4 dishes... chicken kurma, "kembung" fish, chilli omelette and stir-fried "kangkung". While we tried our best not to complain about the food, the sitr-fried kangkung was just too "sandy" (not thoroughly washed) for us to accept. Sigh! Yucks-o-meter 9/10

It was a sleepless night for daddy and mummy. While I snored peacefully between them on the very crammed queen-sized bed, both of them did not (and could not) sleep a wink. Daddy complained that his pillow was smelly. Mummy complained that it was too cold (about 16C although no air-con or fan) so the both of them stayed up the whole night, reading their books until 4am... *yawn*

The following morning, we went for our free buffet breakfast. We told ourselves to focus on the positive and hoped not to encounter or see anymore yucky things. As we were eating, both daddy and mummy caught a whiff of something unpleasant at the dining table. It was a foul "cockroach smell". They thought the smell was from the table cloth so they moved somewhere else but the smell still lingered on. When mummy lifted her cup and took a sip of tea, horror of all horrors, she discovered that the foul-smelling cockroach stench was from her cup!!! There, specks of black and brown stains were seen on a few parts of the cup. How could mummy not see it??? Mummy immediately felt sick to the stomach. She had a tummy discomfort the whole morning.

Utterly disgusting! Confirmed from this cup. After removing the cup from the table, the smell was gone. Gosh, mummy ate cockroach sh*t! Yucks-o-meter 10/10

Yucks to the max! How in the world did this hotel get a rating of 6/10? Mummy could not find one thing good not-unpleasant about this hotel where she could award 1 point to. All she can say is, this hotel is totally unfit for human occupancy!

While daddy and mummy couldn't wait to FLEE from this horrible place, I, on the other hand, was blind to all the ugliness and flaws. I even commented "I like this hotel... I want to come again!" Daddy and mummy *roll eyes* *shake head* *slap forehead* LOL!

  12. From the building structure and so on, I guess you guys went to Cameron Highland for holiday. Your bad experience is very similar to my experince in Langkawi last year, we only took toast as breakfast though they served us buffet breakfast. Now I see your bad experience at hotel from hell, mine was still not as bad as yours.

  16. What a bad experience. I just told myself yesterday too...NO MORE 'discount companies' deals!!! Very misleading! I just had a bad experience too..but makan deal!

    The mould and the exterior outside the unit looks terrible. The worst of the worst award would go to the cockroach experience!!!

  17. Poor you! I read and felt so geli already *shudder*. If they wanted to save funds on painting and improving the place, they could at least have clean beddings and clean eating utensils. But on the bright side, luckily no extra "guest" that night :-S.

  18. I know which hotel you're referring to! Actually, I've stayed there 3 times before. It was a few years back and I didn't eat there.

    It was a little run down at that time (just about my minimum std! We had about 10 pax so couldn't find other places) but not as horrendous as your photos.

    After reading your post, I'm def not going again!
