These things are popping up like mushrooms. I’m currently in Johor and staying at Zoom Inn Boutique Hotel in Danga Bay for a night. I got it online for about RM 90+ and realized that the walk-in rate is only RM 78. There are three shoplot hotels within the area (not including Tune Hotel) and from looking at all (the room wasn’t available until 3 pm) this seems to provide the best price-comfort consideration.
Ill omens and portents. (!!!) Game Over all over the room. I’m not sure I want to see that whenever I open my eyes. However, it is pretty creative, each room is has its unique theme and decoration…and the repeating game over is tethered to a quasi picture frame of someone playing a console game. Very artsy fartsy.
Either-Or sliding door for toilet and shower.
The large LCD TV right at the foot of your bed is awesome though – it has all the premium channels but I only watch Discovery Channel or National Geographic variants/spinoffs. I’ll be happy with those channels.
- Pretty comfortable for a night
- Good selection of cable channels
- Friendly and apologetic staff
- Creative rooms
- Weak to non-existent WiFi
- Room is dark
- No writing desk
It also has stains on the duvet that looks suspiciously like blood. I can only imagine what the previous occupants were doing but since their hairs are still sticking to the pillows, a multitude of entirely unwanted vivid scenarios come into mind.
I’m still waiting for housekeeping to change the sheets.
Speaking of creative, MilkADeal is having an awesome deal for novelty 8 GB USB drives in a variety of designs.
I collect USB drives, though not to this extent, but it’ll be perfect for Secret Santa gifts. :)
