Flamingo Hotel - 2 bedroom suite (Jalan Tanjung Bungah) Penang
Bye bye Ixora Hotel, hello Flamingo Hotel. What a disastrous mistake albeit everything on the surface was truly impressive. Large lobby area and people streaming in non-stop. Initially, I was, mind you, looking forward to an amazing experience in Flamingo Hotel until we walked into our two bedroom suite. Dusk all over the living room, worst was the bedroom. Stained pillow covers, crumbled bed-sheet, hair all over the place, including in the bathroom. Hell! I tried to sound to my other half-half, he on the other hand, thought I was behaving like a diva. Not that he didn't understand what I was saying, he just wouldn't stand up among his family to voice out his opinion. Strange too, I didn't hear a word from the rest of the family members. So, I kept shut.
Thereafter, within the next 10 minutes, disaster struck again. TV remote was playing sparks. House keeping came to rescue, but did nothing. Answer was pretty simple. Remote is not working. Thats it. Fantastic. I still wouldn't keep quiet. I called house keeping again for cleaning up our suite. Hopefully, they heard me loud and clear. The only consolation was balcony overlooking the swimming pool and the sea, and wifi too couldn't be faulted.
I definitely didn't want stay put in my room. I tacked along my other half-half who was going to meet his client. Hopefully, by the time I return later, cleanliness would have been upheld. Back to the room at 10pm, nothing. Nothing has taken place. No cleaning. nothing literally. Did I have a choice? Nope. I tried to occupy myself on wifi, when I really couldn't open my eyes, I forced myself on bed. Next morning, we skipped breakfast. Our instincts did play a vital role. We were not wrong. Complaints after complaints from family members. They had worst disaster in their suites. Toilet bowl clogged up, dirty floors again and breakfast was utterly nonsense. Stale food.
