For this edition of Where to Stay, I will review one of the hotels situated near my parents’ house: the e.City Hotel, Subang Jaya. This hotel is located in a new township known as One City. It is attached to the One City Mall and from the outside, it looks urban. But how does it fare on the inside?
The hotel’s price range is like a normal 3-4 stars hotel but the hotel’s quality is something that is questionable. In my humble opinion, this hotel is not so bad but it needs some fine tunings before it could be considered as a nice hotel.
Firstly, I think the room is overambitious. With dark walls and floors, undeniably it looks elegant at first glance but at the same time it makes the floor to get dirty easily. As for the bathroom, I do not understand why the wall has to be semi transparent. I stayed here with my brother and we had awkward moments while using the bathroom. I would like to suggest the hotel’s management to consider putting up curtains like how the Majestic Hotel KL did.
For the lobby, the check-in kiosk has yet to function during my stay but after it starts working, check-in can be done at the kiosk without having the need to go to the counter. Nevertheless, check-in at the reception was smooth and the staff were friendly. Again, the dark floor has made the floor full with footprints.
I booked the hotel via its website and although I asked for a twin room with breakfast, they only provide for a single breakfast. Still, breakfast was good, good choices and the restaurant located on the top floor was comfortable. Still, one breakfast for a twin or double room is puzzling.
I did not have the chance to use the pool because it was raining heavily when I was there, but I think the dark floor [again] is a no no for a pool because we can’t see what is inside. It might be so dirty but the dark floor makes it hard to see.
Overall, this hotel is nice especially for business traveller on a short visit but there are a lot of things that need to be done to make it better.
