5 Star Rooms!

Hotel Equatorial Bangi, Putra Jaya, We were assign a room on the 5th Floor. As mention in my earlier post, our luggage were send down by the Bell Service, and all were intact when we pop into the room to get some documents, snap some photos and we were out again till 1am.
. .
It was a nice room, with a yellow colour scheme (thanks to the lighting), and utilizing a lot of bamboo materials for the bed headboard, the TV Cabinet, the Writing Table and the Bed Table, That I should say has to do with the Government Call for hotels to be decorated the Traditional Malaysian Method. Well, overall they manage to pull off a suitable combination of traditional and modern comfort. Its not too big or too small, just nice, cosy in fact.
. .
Room with Sliding Door Close.

Room with Sliding Door Open.

The Room have a balcony equip with a table and 2 Chairs, which sad to say is easily accessible from the rooms on either side. Access to this is a wooden sliding door which open up to a glass door with a warning to latch the door. So even the Management have noted that there is a Security Risk here.

From The Balcony we have a nice scenery of the Golf Course and Bangi Township.

Nice View!
Club House
In Room Amenities,
There is a Writing Table with a lamp (lamp was not working on the day) with Coffee and Tea Facilities Provided.
If you fancy the boiler provided you can purchase it for RM160 + if I am not mistaken.
A TV Cabinet, with a Mini Fridge, A Safe, and A lot of TV Channels, (I did not bother to count the channels or note what type. The Fridge is empty, no drinks.
The Bathroom is with a nice WC, Sink and Bath Tub, I must say that the Sink area is nicely done up decoratively, and with most amenities provided, but no shaver or tooth brush provided like those by Swiss Garden Hotels that I have stay in. Soap were of the 20grms verity. Bath and Face towels provided. . . Bed, Nice and firm, though the room was not provided with Extra Pillow, (at 1am, we just slept) with a bed side table. . . Closet, as usual the Anti Theft Hangers of Good Quality, (No hooks) with a Iron and Iron Board. . . Pro . . Nicely Decorated, Comfortable Beds. . Room the right size not too small nor too big (Cosy) . . Suitable Amenities . . Cleanliness Ok, . Fruits Provided. . . Cons . lacking slightly in terms of toiletries amenities (though each hotel decide on their own standards) . No Turn Down Services (which I would expect for a 5 Star). Signs of ware and tear especially near the toilet, (typical in Malaysian Hotels) . Verdict .
Generally up to par for a 5 Star Hotel Room, except for some small minor problems which you will find in most hotels. For those of you that have security concerns, I think it will be better for you to ask for the 6th floor.

At the Lobby your will find Computer Display Screens to let your know what is going on, I was surprise not to find them in the Lift as well as with one government building in Penang.
