I book dorm bed, shower in shared bathroom, all heater shower heads leaking and came off easily. That's really frustrating.

Perfect location, great hotel
Our stay at Apollo Inn was simply great. We had a few issues the first night as the room next to us had an alarm that have been ringing all night but as soon as we raised the issue on the next morning, the manager gave us another room first thing. Exceptional customer service!! The rooms are tidy and cleaned daily, the breakfast is good, and the staff is very friendly. The hotel is conveniently located, only a few minutes walk from Komtar bus terminal, a mall, right by delicious food stalls, restaurants and cafes. The only thing is the wifi isn't always working on level 4 but in level 2 rooms, wifi is good.

small but fine
Mr Alan was extremely accommodating, helping with our planning and giving tips. The room is small but clean and ok for a short stay. the Wifi reception was rather poor in the room but good in the lobby. nice breakfast daily, and snacks throughout the day. Very close to the bus terminal, so convenient to access the entire island

Wasted Days and Wasted Nights
Not much to tell, we came, we saw, we had trouble breathing the pollution and heat was abominable , enhancing the pollution index more, we left. Won't be back, nothing memorable about this trip but the wasted money. That part will heal, but can't get back the wasted days.

Nice comfortable bed
Very comfortable bed. Love it. The only setback was a WiFi. You can’t use it in the bedroom, but when you try to use it in the lobby area, it is virtually no speed at all. Please improve on that. It’s very important.
